how to install VIC3 2FXS/DID and VIC2-2FXO cards on Cisco 2801 router PVDM2-8

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I'm looking for information on how to install 2 newly purchased cards and keep running into dead links. The cards I bought are for a CISCO-2801-CCME/K9 with PVDM2-8, FL-CCME-25, SP Services 128F/256D cisco router:
vic3 2fxs/DID and a vic2 2fxo.
I keep finding documents on how to install these cards but all links are dead and leading to nowhere.

The 2 documents i'm looking for are: how to install a 2-port vic2 fxo cards on cisco 2801 router and how to install 2-port vic3 2fxs/DID cards on the same 2801 cisco router.
NOTE: I've never installed these cards and am not sure if:
Does my ios support both of these cards?
 and which slots do I install those in the router.
I have 4 slots like this:
slot 0: This slot only accepts VIC's  ***This could be used for the vic3 2fxs/DID card correct?
slot 1: Nothing written here  ****What can i install in this slot?
slot 2: This slot only accepts VIC's and WIC's  ***If I buy a WIC and install here which other slot can i install my VIC2-2FXO card in ?
slot 3: Nothing written here  ***What can i install in this slot?
Any chance someone can help me out with this.
Thanks very much
