setting up SBIG internal guide chip in Maxim DL 5

Hello I have Maxim DL 5.
I have just acquired an older style SBIG OSC with an internal guide chip ( ST 4000XCM) .
In camera set up dialogue it allows for SBIg and SBIG w/AO and this connects ok, but where do I set up guiding for the second chip? I tried setting the second guide camera for SBIG and it won't connect. I noticed a small tick box in the first camera settings for use second chip but this doesn't mention guiding with the second chip.
In Maxim CCD screen shots on line they have a special drop down box for guide with internal chip- my version of Maxim DL 5 doesn't have this
How do I set it to guide with the second chip?

IIRC, it's just a matter of ticking the "Dual Chip Mode" box then going to the dialog for "Setup Camera" on Camera 2, selecting the SBIG driver and setting "Guide chip" to "Internal".

sbig internal guider

Once that is done do you calibrate as you would an external guider?
I am just checking to make sure everything is hunky dory as I couldn't get two different sensor pics in MAxim DL 5 only in CCDOps.
dual chip cameras are (obviously) new to me!
