There's no reason you can't do that...  I have a Lenovo S10 with a
160GB disk and here's my current partition setup:

/dev/sda1      20GB               Windows XP
/dev/sda2      100GB             /home
/dev/sda3      EXTENDED
/dev/sda5      100MB             /boot  # for #!Crunchbang
/dev/sda6      2GB                 swap
/dev/sda7      20GB               /        # for #!Crunchbang
/dev/sda8      100MB             /boot  # for UNR 9.10
/dev/sda9      10GB               /        # for UNR 9.10
/dev/sda10     100MB            /boot  # for Slax
/dev/sda11     10GB              /        # for Slax

(those are approximate sizes)

and everything boots just fine.  I am using the older Grub though, as
I've not played enough with Grub2 to decide whether or not I like it.
