Running 2 Hard Drives @Same Time

Well, your question is a bit cryptic, here goes 2 possible answers.

Normally, you setup one drive as the master, and the other drive as the slave on the same IDE cable.

The master will be drive C: the slave will be drive

If you want to have 2 drives act as a single large drive, you need a RAID controller.

Both drives MUST be the exact same make and model.
Then, set them up as a RAID 0 array.

If you are concerned about concurent operation the drives must on different controllers ie: PRI/SEC. IDE does not support cuncurency on the same bus.
