On different partitions, yes.
Don't try to overlap them.

P.S.: I guess, if you're _very_ knowledgeable, you _could_ overlap a few
directories in the same partition. E.g., portions of /home, under
certain conditions, for distributions that are not too different, could
be the same.
However, i mention this just as a theoretical case. Again, don't try
this unless you know Linux inside-n-out.
