Partitioning questions

I have just gone through h*ll and back getting a distro to work with my new mobo. Abit IP35-E. Finally it looks like Suse 10.3 is going to work. I'm putting this box together primarily for space. I have (1) 250GB hdd and (2) 500gb hdd's. My question is this, I have loaded Suse and the swap on the 250gb drive. How can I load the /home partition on the 2 500gb drives so it recognizes it as 1tb.

If i have to reformat/re-install suse thats no problem. I have never done this before but essentially just want the 250 for the system and the 2 500gb's for storage, and it would be nice for it to be recognized as 1tb for the /home partition.

Any ideas...TIA
