    1.Will this be possible(two linux OS's in the same system) in the first place

    you can have as many OSs as your heart (and your hard disk capacity) desires.

    Ansers:-
    1. Yes
    2. No, they can all hapily use the same swap partition.
    3. Look into the tutorila section of this forum for one about solving boot problems with grub, and you'll find a working example of a /boot/grub/grub.conf


    have fun

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
