Default Finally! my gears are here and I need help please

Ok, now I know my questions might seem a little noob to some of you veteran users, but we all was in the same shoes at one point of time right? Please bare with me guys.
I have my digi 001, triton extreme, and e-mu planet phatt sound module all connected via midi, and via audio. The way I have it setup right now is:

MIDI out from 001 to MIDI in of triton
MIDI out from triton to MIDI in of 001
MIDI thru of triton to MIDI in of e-mu sound module

AUDIO L & R from triton to input 3 & 4 of 001
AUDIO L & R from planet phatt to 5 & 6 of 001
AUDIO MAIN from 001 to my event monitors

So here's the question, is it more logical to use only the L audio output for mono, or L & R as stereo?
Last but not least, can someone please give me a walkthrough on how to sync all 3 gears? I was reading the manuals, but I'm really having difficulty understanding this. I've been using my triton extreme to sequence, sample, etc.. the whole nine so I am fairly new to putting gears together.

If someone can kindly help me out I would really appreciate it!
I am using 5.3.1 for XP.

I am not sure what your gear is without searching but this is the rule of thumb:
You have MIDI out and MIDI thru along with MIDI in. Sometimes it is switchable inside the box, sometimes outside, sometimes you don't have the option. Just think of this logically with the above in mind. If you need to split the MIDI, things get more complicated.

<< So here's the question, is it more logical to use only the L audio output for mono, or L & R as stereo? >>

If you are referring to mono output of your sound modules, use whatever they recommend. If they recommend going left only for mono then do that. You can sometimes have issues when you combine left & right in order to create a mono signal, unless they are identical.

If you are talking about monitoring audio from your 001, don't go mono, go stereo.

In terms of synchronizing, (please correct me if I am wrong, 001 users) I believe you are going to want your 001 to be the clock for everything. That means when you create a new session you will want to set up the Protools midi section in the transport area to have the correct tempo, etc. Instruct your midi gear to follow the 001 clock. That way everything, including audio tracks, will always be in sync with your midi.
