Striped RAID-0 both drives on same IDE channel or each drive gets its own?

Hi,
I'm looking to put 2 IDE drives into a striped set. Was wondering if I
should connect both of them to the same IDE channel or give each one of
them a separate channel. I have no problem doing either, just wondering
what would give best performance.

Running WinXP. IDE's are ATA133. Drives are different but about same
size. (I know the set will only be twice as big as the smallest drive).

Thanks.

Put them on seperate cables. Then both can do I/O at the same time.
