Start out by defining the first card on the master. Define the address 
for the master for DBHostName in /usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt on the 
slave. Now run mythtvsetup on the slave and define your card. The card 
in the master won't show up, but you are in fact defining the card in 
the slave as the second card in your system as a whole.

Oh, and do NOT choose to clear all cards from the database on the slave 
machine, because while you can't see or define the cards on the master 
with mythtvsetup on a slave, you can remove them from the database 
(been there, done that by mistake).
