One slight problem with this is that if one shares /home
between the two versions this could conceivably cause problems.

I've gone over to Fedora-9 on a new partition,
but yesterday reverted to Fedora-8 to try to sort out
problems with openssl under F-9.

I use KDE; and it struck me that KDE under F-8 might make changes
to files in ~/.kde which would be incompatible with KDE-4.
As it happened this did not seem to happen,
but I created a user "guest" to use in future on Fedora-8 just in case.
