Yamaha 02R w/Ptools 888-please help

Hallo everyone,
I am planning to buy a new console and after a month of thinking I have made my mind but I need some feedback.

I would buy 2 consoles: a Yamaha 02r and a 8ch trident s100.
I used to use an 02R but I don't remember anything about how to set it up digitally.
I also have 2 888/24 with a mix plus.
My set up would be (and here I need to know if I am missing something):

mic 1-8 into the s100-than into 888's analog in 1-8
mic 9-19 into the 02R- than into 888's AES ins 1-8.

After prottols I would like to monitor from the 02R digitally at 24 bit, and I am not sure about few things:
1. is the 02r 24 bit capable or not? (I have read something about using 2 channels to makeit 24bit but I do not understood)
2. does the 02r have dedicated tape returns? I mean can I use its mic pre 1-8 and monitor AES at the same time?
3. what cards do I need to buy?

One more thing do the mic pres on the o2r suck real bad or they are usable?
Anyidea or comment is very welcome.
Thank you much

Since you said please..

1. is the 02r 24 bit capable or not? (I have read something about using 2 channels to makeit 24bit but I do not understood)
The A/D converters are 20-bit, but it will do 24 bits digitally. So your second eight microphones that are going directly into the O2R will be recorded at 20-bit resolution. Not that that's really a problem.

2. does the 02r have dedicated tape returns? I mean can I use its mic pre 1-8 and monitor AES at the same time?
No, it doesn't have dedicated tape returns like an inline console, but you can monitor your tape returns through additional channels.

3. what cards do I need to buy?
Two of their AES cards.
