Quick portable lighting setup for parties

First of all, I just want to tell you how incredible your web site is! Finally I can find a place that can take a lot of the guesswork out of my lighting problems!

What I need to know is this. I do a lot of “instant pictures” on site at parties, weddings, family reunions, etc. I have a nice two-sided blue/tan muslin backdrop and I am using a Canon Powershot Pro 1 8MP camera. I just recently got this great inexpensive light setup on ebay, which includes two strobe/slave flashes on 7′ stands. I need to know what would be the best light placement in this situation, given that I take full-body and portrait pictures interchangably and don’t have time to change the lights with every shot. My main problem is trying to eliminate shadows.
