First I have to ask about your screen name... You wouldn't happen to be bidding on some cloth diapers on eBay at the moment are you? I have some wahm diapers up for auction right now and one of my bidders has the same screen name you're using......
For the diaper you're mentioning..... Chances are that the liner you got is to put on top of the snap-in soaker. I'd have to see the diaper to be sure but most snap-in soaker diapers are made to have the soaker in at all times. Most traditional fitted diapers have the soaker sewn right inside the diaper (it's the thicker part of the diaper that's always in the center) but some wahms make their diapers with the soaker on the outside (either sewn at one end or that snaps in at one end) so that it dries quicker...
If the soaker has micro-fleece on it you'll want to put the liner underneath the soaker instead of on top. That way the fleece stays in contact with baby's skin to help keep it dry. The fleece (or any other stay-dry lining) is useless if covered by anything.
Just a bit of unsolicited advice.... Be wary of using AIOs during the night. I mention this cause you mention using the AIO you bought with a liner. I obviously don't know what kind of diaper you're talking about but there are very few AIOs that are suitable for nighttime use. It depends a lot on construction.... No harm in trying with whatever you have, but make sure baby's mattress is protected just in case. I've tried a lot of wahm AIOs (I'm making the assumption that this is a wahm diaper because of the snap-in soaker, never heard of one in mass manufactured diapers) and very few I would trust for nighttime use. They're often focused on being cute and many are plenty good enough for daytime but nighttime presents a lot of challenges!
