In my home computer I have 1x 120GB HDD and 1 x8GB, both IDE.
my 120 has C: of 10gb, windows and D: of 110, applications.
My 8GB just has 1 partition E:, which hosts a virtual HDD for VMware and my
pagefile, its on a separate bus so a small increase in performance.
I was wondering, is it possible to set-up a spanned partition across C: and
I am not sure if you can set-up a spanned partition using only 1 partition
of a hard drive and not the other and also as C:has windows on it, if I can
do this, would I see any performance increase? Also which is spanned is it

No. Windows will not span the boot partition.
You CAN span D-E. But given the dissimiliarity of your drives, and the
suckiness of software RAID, I don't think it would be a good idea. Or
at any rate, no perormance benefit.
Raid 0 is spanned.
Raid 1 is mirrored.
More RAID stuff.
