    Sharing Dropbox folder with multiple distros

    I have a laptop with four Linux distros in their own partition. Is it possible to share my dropbox folder with all of the distros? I was thinking of having dropbox in it's own partition and then have the distros point to that folder. What are my options?

    Thanks!!

    Yes you should be able to install DropBox on each distro and use your name and password to get dropbox folder.......... that is what I do ... although if you don't have nautilus in the other distro you might not get fancy graphics (like check marks).

    Thanks Mike555!!

    So how would I go about doing this? I know how to install Dropbox on each distro but regarding my dropbox folder should I set up a seperate partition and just put the dropbox folder there and then have the distros pointing to it through Dropbox? I'm just a bit confused here.
