My first question... Why? RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independant Disks. If you have one hard drive, even if you set it up as 6 partitions you don't truly have a RAID. RAID 0 would only provide a performance boost if you had multiple disks.
As far as the question about using two disks, to get the maximum speed you would definatley have to have them on seperate IDE channels since IDE can only read/write one device at a time per channel. I don't know if you would get any increase in performance if you set them up as Master/Slave on the same channel.
