I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 installed on my machine, due to some reasons I need to install one more copy of Ubuntu.. Is it possible that the new Ubuntu uses the same swap space used by previous one?

Yes you can use the same swap partition, unless you use hibernate to swap on either of those. If you don't use hibernate, you're fine.

And even if you hibernate, the hibernated distro should force the bootloader to load it. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 12 '11 at 1:36
