Sorry if someone's already asked this question, but I could not find any 
information on this anywhere I looked.
Is it possible to have both gnucash-1.8.2 and gnucash-1.9.8 installed 
using apt?

I'm running Dapper with gnucash-1.8.2-6ubuntu3.  I'd like to test out 
1.9.8 using Synaptic/Aptitude/Apt.  If I follow the above directions, 
won't it break my current gnucash install?

Thanks in advance for any help.
