what is it that you are trying to accomplish?

Setting up a RAID array for storage redundancy and data protection?

Just had a bunch of old HDD laying around and want to use them for extra storage space instead of getting one large external drive?

You don't. Look up what IDE is and see what your motherboard/PC/controller will do.
