Yes, it is like dualbooting linux + windows. I haven't used it for 7.04 + 
7.10 myself, only for 6.06 + 7.04. My advice: Use a separate partition 
for 7.10, the swap partition can be used for both installations. During 
the installation of 7.10 the swap partition will be reformatted. 
Therefore you should uodate your 7.04 fstab if it has UUIDs in use. 
Furthermore, I think it is better not to use a common /home partition. 
The format of some configuration files might change -- then you might 
have trouble when using 7.04 again.
