When using two flashes, what should the ratio be from one to the other? One for main light and the other fill in. Lets say the main one has a GN of 100, what should the other be for minimal light? Again, lets say I am using 100 speed film. I have tried some things before and found the darker side to be a bit grainy. Please toss in your two cents here. Thanks!!

There is no "should" answer -- there is only the answer that gives you the look you want. However, a good rule of thumb is the fill should be 1 stop lower than then main.

If your main is at f11, set your fill to f8

Assuming the flashes are of equal power, but one twice as far as the other and shoot. This should give you a nice fill. If you use umbrellas to bounce the flash, then you'll get a softer photo.
Cheers,
