Here you go!
The setup is basic, both power supplies are triggered at the same time via the GND short to PWR ON by the motherboard. Both of the PSUs are single rail so they are both bridged directly, COM(-), 3v. 5v. 12v lines to a wire block. The main PSU provides the power directly to the motherboard, PCI cards, and SATA plugs. The secondary PSU has two LEDs to show PWR standby and PWR on Status. The commercial power line filtering is setup to minimize any interference or noise to the power supplies. The only thing I didn't show in the diagram is the the AUX 24 pin motherboard connector that I added to the secondary PSU for later use.
Here is a quick diagram:
