in over my head with triple-boot

In an attempt to complicate my life I thought I would try & setup a
triple-boot on one of my test machines lying around. I find, as it
gets later into the evening, that things are not going as planned so I
figure I should ask for some advice. Below is my attempted setup,
suggestions are welcome (please).
60G HDD partitioned as follows
200M /boot ext3
1024M swap swap
LVM remaining space
10G /dev/OS/fedora ext3
10G /dev/OS/ubuntu ext3
10G /dev/OS/suse ext3
25G /dev/OS/home (I'm also attempting to share a central
/home between each)
So far I've started with fedora, added ubuntu and then fedora runs
into troubles at boot with "unable to access LABEL=SWAP-hda2". I'm
also not sure I'm doing the partitioning correctly at each install. I
make sure to set the /boot, swap & /home and do not format them. At
that point I set the appropriate /dev/OS/ as / for the next distro.
I've re-installed a few times today trying to get things right but at
this point I'm wondering if I'm going about it the wrong way. If
anyone has any tips on how to better organize it, or maybe if there is
a better distro to start/end with.. I'm stuck.
Appreciate the help. I'll keep plugging along.
