  1. Raid 0 or spanning.

    That or stack them on a 100 ton press and hit the button. :)
  2. It's called a RAID array. With 2 physical drives, you could do a RAID 0 or 1 (assuming you have a RAID controller).

    Here's some good reading.

    How do I set the jumpers though?
  4. Jumpers are the pins on the back of the hard drive. They look like this.

    Look at the label on the drives. They should say Master, Slave, or Cable select. The jumper should match the position of the IDE cable (end of the cable is master, middle is slave). The main drive is the master, the secondary drive is the slave.

    SATA or IDE? SATA drives dont have jumpers for Master/Slave. One drive per cable only.

    IDE drives should be marked on the underside or on the label on which pins are what.
