    So, here's what I have:

    500 GB internal iMac HD
    500 GB external FireWire800 HD
    1 TB Time Capusle
    2 TB FireWire800 HD

    I'm currently using the 2TB drive as my time machine backup and the other drives for mostly media files (lots of movies, tv shows, etc.). What I would like to do is combine the non-backup drives to show up as a single drive in leopard. Is this possible? RAID 0 is out of the question since they're different sizes. Is there a way in Disk Utility to do this?

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    In the future, you will be able to do this by creating a ZFS pool and adding your drives to it.

    I wouldn't try to do this now, though.

    So I'm stuck waiting for Snow Leopard at this point?
