To avoid hitting anything else on that board, install the HD cards to the far slots, the PCI slots closest to the edge of the case. The USB card can really go anywhere. As to the installation, you need to install both cards, hook up the flex cable, connect and powr on the interface prior to installing Pro Tools. After the card installation, turn the CS on, ignore the Found New Hardware wizards, and install Pro Tools.

The analog I/O of the 192 is all on d-sub 25 connectors. We sell an assortment of cables that break those out into XLR or TRS plugs.

I have protools 8.0 le installed on my 2.4 core 2 quad creation station
after I uninstall the 8.0 le version. Do I need to do anything else with in the creation station, other than install 8.0 hd

No, that should be it. Install the cards, connect the interface, then install the software, in that order. On the first boot after installing the cards, ignore any "Found New HW" wizards that pop up.
