I definitely agree with Mike.  Get one card working, then another 
one.  Do one at a time.  I have two cards (150 and 250) in one 
backend, and they more or less work correctly.

My problem is that I can't seem to get a non-master backend 
connected to my master backend so I can get 2 more 250s 
and a pcHD3000 working.
