What do you mean by "one configuration"? You cannont RAID them, if thats what you mean. As for jumpers, jumpers are only used for drives on IDE channels, SATA does not use jumpers. What you could do is install both drives, configure them as dynamic drives in Windows and make a spanned volume across both drives. Then they would show up as one drive in My Computer.

SATA doesn't use Master and Slave per se, but i'd install Windows on the SATA drive as they tend to be faster.
