compatible digidesign inerfaces

Hi there, im buying a few digidesign 882 interfaces, but some of them are different bit rates i.e. two interfaces are 20 bit, one is 16 and the other is 24. Are these still all compatible to chain together or do they all have to be the same bit rate? also, are interfaces which have a different bit rate to the sound card i.e. protools mix 24 and a 16/20 bit 882 interface, compatible to the sound card or do they also have to be matching bit rates?

They will work just fine.
PT will record 24 bit files with 20bits of data from the 882/20 and with 16bits of data from the 882 (16version).

the only thing i would do is use the 20bit version for the more important parts, and leave the 16bit 882 to stuff with less dynamic or less important stuff.

A guy who i might be buyin' from told me that the software isn't included with the actual card, but i can download this from the digi site. Would there be a limit to the version i got and would it cost??
