    Go on, have a guess
    For the disks you need to look into either software raid or Logical Volume Management on the server. Check out the likes of www.tldp.org for more information on either technique.

    it's possible to merge 2 disks with symbolic link?

    create one directory and make symbolic link to another folder. it's possible?

    Apparently, for merging two HDs you can use raid (if its provided by server hardware - its best solution). Using LVM or software raid is recommended but can cost you some CPU overhead. Also you can try some exotic things like unionfs (http://www.unionfs.org/). The latest has its own drawback - probably you've have your quota's wrong due to be on different mountpoints.
