Nice trick learnt from Solaris

I have been testing Lucid Links lately. Because I had some bad experiences with alpha software I decided to make the same trick that Solaris is doing with it's 'LIVEUPGRADE' partition.
I have installed two identical copies of Karmic Koala and I have upgraded one of them to 10.04.
The /home directory is on a separate partition and can be mounted by both of them.
In this way I am able always to boot a backup system in case that the unstable alpha is crashing (and it was the case with the latest kernels/plymouth/gdm).
