I'm gonna install Ubuntu on my MBP and dual-boot. Have tried Virtualbox, but I want a native install after all.

I have a 250GB drive, and I thought I'd make an ext3 partition of 15GB to install Ubuntu on. What I'm unsure about is where Ubuntu should read/write media and documents. I believe OS X is fond of having the User folder on the same partition as the rest, so I thought maybe I could just mount my OS X /home with read/write support in Ubuntu, and let it work with the Documents/Photos/Movies/Music-folders there.

Do you see any pitfalls with this? As long as it's mostly media and stuff I access, I shouldn't screw up permissions or other stuff for OS X, I hope/think.
