i've just bought a "livedrive 2" from ebay (awaiting delivery) and was
just wondering:

*once you hook up the livedrive to your sblive card, does it disable the
cards input/output ports, leaving you with only those on the livedrive,
or do you have access to both the livedrive + sblive inputs/outputs?

if so is it possible to record from the cards "line input" and the
livedrives "line2/mic2 input" at the same time?

*are there any issues that i should know about with the livedrive in
linux, or won't its presence really make that much difference to my
sound setup?

thanx for any help
