[erlang-questions] Multiple Erlang installations into same directory

Hi guys

I have a question regarding multiple Erlang installations on Linux.

Is it possible to install multiple releases into the same prefix 
(/usr/local/lib/) and still use the different versions independently?
For example erts-5.6.5, erts-5.7.5 and erts-5.8.4?
And would I have to change anything in the applications to support this?

It would seem that the installation is built to support this since each 
erts version has it's own folder.

Thanks in advance.
