I think you'll be needing four drives for that.  In the interest of
speed, put your root drive(s) and two of the big drives on the mobo's
IDE controllers and then put the other two big drives on a PCI-bus dual
IDE card, one per controller.  Run without swap, and only use the
smaller drives for booting
