This suggests that new distros can share the swap file, and maybe the /home partition too? Is that correct or have I misunderstood?
As for /home each distro must have it's unique user. Such as steve, mcsteve, and stevemc. So that they don't sqaush each others config files. With six distros installed, I have six users in my /home.

No. They will both use their own kernels.

To be quite honest, the kernel, artwork, and a few proprietary apps is what makes each distro, a distro.
On the other hand, What would be the problem with running the preemptable kernel all the time in one distro. After all this is a desktop distro
I'm confused on how you could have two different kernels for the same distro and choose which one to boot from....?
