I'm attempting to do Lab 2-4 on EIGRP Frame Relay Hub and Spoke.  This is on Cisco's Lab Portfolio 642-901.  I've posted both topology diagram from the book and my present setup for GNS3.  My question is more on the setup of GNS3 and I wanted to ask if I've done this correctly because I can't seem to understand a couple of things on there:

1.  On my GNS3 setup I do not have a "cloud" present, will this be a problem?  If so, how can I fix this?
2.  DLCI 102 and 103 on the Lab diagram shows, from the FRS router, that there should be two serial links for this, one for the 102 dlci and the other for the 103, how is this supposed to be addressed within GNS3 because I only have S1/0 going to the HQ router (referred to as R1 on GNS3 setup)?
3.  What router should I be using since router c7200 and c2691 both have serials that go by s0/0, s1/0, s1/1 and according to the lab, it want's me to setup s0/0/0, s0/0/1 and I don't have this capability?  What router version should I be using for this setup?

1.  On my GNS3 setup I do not have a "cloud" present, will this be a problem?  If so, how can I fix this?

If you are referring to the frame relay being the cloud, then no, you are fine with just using the frame relay switch.

2.  DLCI 102 and 103 on the Lab diagram shows, from the FRS router, that there should be two serial links for this, one for the 102 dlci and the other for the 103, how is this supposed to be addressed within GNS3 because I only have S1/0 going to the HQ router (referred to as R1 on GNS3 setup)?

Just add an additional WIC card to your router. Go to Configure for the specific router and then to the slots tab.

3.  What router should I be using since router c7200 and c2691 both have serials that go by s0/0, s1/0, s1/1 and according to the lab, it want's me to setup s0/0/0, s0/0/1 and I don't have this capability?  What router version should I be using for this setup?

I always use the 3600 or 3700 series routers. As for the serial numbering that is not really important. Just keep track of what and where you connect your serials.

I also tried to change the WIC within the slots tab, but the WIC seems to be "grayed out".
How do I fix this?
