Slider works fine with one character, but when I add another character to the scene the sliders for one character effect both character Rigs at the same time. Can anyone please help?

check the item names, of the effected objects. if they are the same, try changing one of them. Lightwave can't tell the difference between 2 objects with the same name.

Sometimes an easy way to do that is to load the scene file into a text editor and change/append the names that way.
You might have to be careful about the name change and LW expressions. Relativities expressions are generally more robust/forgiving.
You might also consider animating the fingers via selection sets rather then slider controls. You can easily create selection sets for different groups of fingers and the rotations are additive. ;)

Thank you for your reply Larry, but I don't know how to load a scene file into a text editor? Guess I have homework to do :)

Scene files are just text files.
You can edit them in a text editor so doing
things like search/replace is pretty easy. :)
