The easiest way to do this is to not merge them at all. Just mount one
partition as root (/), and one or more partitions as subdirectories under
that. For instance, you might have:
If you really must create a single contiguous logical partition, you need
to use the multiple devices support in the kernel (in the block devices
area). This support is also known as RAID. There's a HOWTO document about
it, so check that.
