I am building a digital audio rec system.I am seeking info regarding the installation of a MOTU 324 PCI card. Any insite would be helpful.

1.I currently have a Creative Labs AWE64 sound card in my PC. I would like to use this card as my default midi adapter(via gameport-midi adapt), but not as the default sound card. Should I uninstall the AWE64 prior to installing the PCI324?

2.Am i setting up the potential for conflicts with both cards installed.

3.Is it true that I should install the 324 software before installing the PCI card?

4.Should I disable any other SCSI peripherrals such as CD-ROM, internal ZIP, Super Disk, etc.?

5.Do I really need to reformat my HD and set up an outer partition for faster read/write access times, or are my system specs at par with my goals.
6.Re: My Dual SCSI HD,s:
I can't seem to get windows to recognize my second hard drive and i'm think its probable that it is loading in the bios utility instead.
The system was set up originally as a dual boot system. So far I have low level formatted the secondary HD from the Adaptec SCSIcontroller's bios utility.I have tried to change the status of this drive within the bios utility to all drive vs. boot only. I also set for plug and play. Any ideas ? I am booting from 1 drive and read/writing audio to the secondary.
