     You should have no problem with this setup.  I have a similar
setup, except it is spread over three hard drives, and the partition
sizes are quite different.  I have a Woody partition, a Potato
partition, backup partitions for each, a /local partition that is
symlinked to my home directory, and a large /usr/local partition,
primarily for building my packages.  I also have a DOS 6.22 partition
and an WIN95 partition.

     I can boot into any of these partitions using GRUB, and my home
and /usr/local are mounted in any of the Linux partitions.
