Since he's going to use different users, I don't see a problem.  It should
work fine.

I got it! Two different users, one for Edgy and one for Dapper, and they can
share the partition for home.Just one thing, to me strange: when i run Edgy,
the folder of Dapper's user owns to the Edgy's user, and viceversa.
