Ive never really done any SLI, but in my knowledge, install the drivers before installing the card, shut down, install the card and bridge, and boot back up. There should be a pop up window in the lower hand side of the screen saying SLI capable card has been installed blah blah blah, click it it will bring up the NVIDIA control panel and allow you to enable SLI. If it doesnt show up, just open the NVIDIA control panel, and you should be able to find it there, shouldnt in theory be to difficult they make things pretty easy these days.

You should have no problems setting up SLI if you have a powerful enough PSU and the SLI bridge. You will probably have to go into the Nvidia control panel to enable SLI and will have to do it every time you upgrade drivers. As for actual performance using an old GeForce 9 graphics card, you may have better results if you went with a newer more powerful single card.
