Always a good idea. I personally partition like this:
sda1: OS / (production or testing)
sda2: OS / (production or testing, the opposite of sda1)
sda3: /swap

released. Then the other one becomes the testing partition. I keep my
/home partion but change the username for each distro install, so that
conflicting config files don't cause problems (think KDE3 -> KDE4 for
