Default Dual-Link crossfire hookup for 2560x1600

I just got my Dell U3011 and was wondering if anyone could walk me through the proper way to connect my 2 5870's, in crossfire, to my U3011.

I'm assuming that you connect one of the dual-links cables to one of the video cards and the other to the second video card and then to the monitor?

Default

first get all current drivers, sound, chipset, bios, moniter and video
update all but video

clear out all video drivers and use default

shut down and remove powercard and push start button

install the video cards and hook up pci-e power to both cards then place the bridge on cards close to the rear and readable looking from front to rear.

hook Dell U3011 to the upper card closest to MB (use only 1 moniter for now) and use DVI cable or HDMI

power up and load current video drivers
