I have been experimenting with some of the different versions of Linux.  I have 2 questions:  1)  Is there a limit on how many installations I can have on one drive?  2)  Does each individual installation need it's own Swap partition or do "they" share one?

 

Thnaks in advance,

Scott

No idea but I doubt it. Try using Virtual Machine.

Only limit I can see is the number of partitions you can make on a hardrive you know the logical primary thing.
