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.
