Default Installing Ubuntu alongside Fedora 8 - issues?

I run Linux as my main home desktop system, for many years it was
Slackware, then for the last couple of years it has been Fedora (7
then 8).

I've been running Ubuntu Server on my 'NAS' system which lives in my
garage and having that has overcome the reasons I didn't move to
Ubuntu on my main system.

So.................

If I want to do a slow migration from Fedora 8 to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS are
there any major issues I should be aware of? I have masses of disk
space and (for example) when I migrated from F7 to F8 I just did a new
install of F8 which dual booted with F7 and I migrated my
customisations across. /home is on its own partition.

Can I do the same with Ubuntu? I.e. can I install Ubuntu on its own
partition and leave F8 intact and then boot one or the other as
required until I'm happy with the new Ubuntu installation? Will
Ubuntu and Fedora 'co-operate' with how they see Grub, /boot, etc.?

That tells me all about how Ubuntu differs from other distributions
once it's installed, but it doesn't address my question at all.

I want to know if I can dual boot Fedora and Ubuntu and whether there
are any quirks/gotchas if I try it.

Geeze, someone who has used Fedora 7 and 8 should know that ANY
Linux that is started by Grub will work along side any other Linux. Load
Ubuntu from the Live CD and it will make a Grub that boots both Ubuntu
and all your other Linux systems.

OK, thanks, I thought it was probably so but I wanted to be sure.
