I ordered a Flex-6300 and plan to use it on HF and 6 meters.  I currently have a Flex-5000a with the VHF/UHF board and also run a 1296 transverter.  I am assuming that I can run the 5000a and the 6300 at the same time on the same computer since one is firewire and the other ethernet.  Is this the case?  I was able to do this with the 5000 and the 1500 as long as I opened the 1500 first (USB vs Fireware).  I'd like to be able to run them both during the June VHF contest (6 meters on 6300 and 2 meters and up on 5000a).

Yes, no problem.  I do it all the time when testing the FLEX-6000.
