    Are you simply trying to setup a dual-boot system?

    Follow the installation process for each OS, setup a separate partition for each OS. The exact partition layout will depend on what you intend using the systems for. If you have not done the install yet then I suggest you install CentOS first, then install Ubuntu, the bootloader should configure dual boot for you automatically.

    I agree with Jonathan183. Install CentOS before Ubuntu because installers of RedHat based distros don't detect other installed distros.
    Create only one SWAP partition for both OSes. CentOS and Ubuntu will share same SWAP partition.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
