[ubuntu-uk] Some advice about /boot

My setup has always been grub on mbr and grub on /boot for each installation. Either way is pretty simple, the only difficulty I can forsee is if you change the kernel on one of the installs that doesn't handle the grub install, then you won't be able to boot to the new kernel until grub is updated.

I'm looking at quad booting my laptop (Win 7, Ubuntu (dev),
debian(stable) and LFS) and wondered if it was possible to use a
shared /boot partition across the 3 linux distros. The main reason for
doing so would be so that everything is more tidy, but also to reduce
wasted space!

Any advice would be much appreciated.
