Will Google ding me if...

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Say I have a 'primary' domain www.bestfoointerp.com on my host server. I
also own 'secondary' domains www.foointerp.com and www.fooeval.com (and
.net and .org).

I'd like to have the secondary domains with their one-page content the
same, but different from the landing page of the primary site. I want to
link the primary from each of the secondaries.

Can I have all the sites on the same server as the primary, without fear
of being penalized by Google?

If the sites are all on the same server, can I have the secondaries simply
redirect to the primary, without a Google issue?

registration data, maybe even server load data (all sites on the same
server would become slower or faster at the same time and they do measure
speed) or whatever else they have in the mountain of information they

IMO, the issue is the duplicated content, not the parked domain. I could be way
off on this, but from the outside looking in, how would Google know that it's a
parked domain, and not a second account with the same pages?
