Although the rules don't state it, pawns on the first rank can move two spaces, subject to en passant capture. I determined this by looking at the Zillions implementation.

If you want to play game such that using standard FIDE pieces (no extra queen/etc), then, you use same setup, but pawns are now allowed to promote only to pieces not on the board (other than king and pawn), and this includes bishops.
