using slave flash units - Photography

I'm having to do some group family portraits indoors. I have three small slave flash units to use with the main flash on my slr. can anyone advise on exposure. I plan on using the slaves one on each side as fill and one to lighten up the background. What kind of adjustment to apeture do I need to make to acount for the extra light. Should I expose for the main flash only or close down 1 or 2 stops? any comments appreciated Jeff...

    Lighting people like you're doing copies of old pictures isn't the best
    way.
