In theory yes.  However in practice... ;-)

I don't know.  Experimentation is probably the answer!  Lots of things
that _should_ work often don't when you come to try them when it comes
to syncing lots of digital stuff together.

If you are working to a short time frame, I would suggest that you sync
the PCs together using MIDI and simply take analog outputs from the PCs
to the desk; this massively simplifies the digital audio syncing
problem, but you do loose a bit of sound quality in the process -
probably not that important for a live set anyway.

I hate to say it, but the whole thing would be a heck of a lot easier if
you were both using Cubase SX and fruity rather than Sonar.  Not only
would it remove the complication of VSTi/DX wrappers, but System Link
and VRacks make this sort of hookup simple, on paper at least - I can't
afford Cubase SX so I'll never know!

hope that helps,
