Networking with Cisco and 2 c7000 chassis

I am on this project currently for one of my client. They have purchased 2 x c7000 chassis. We have proposed to use active/standby mode for the network via the flex-10 ports by aggregating x1, x2 & x3 on bay 1 and x1, x2, x3 on bay 2 on the blade chassis. These then go to ports on my two switches which are stacked.

What should my port settings on my ports on my switch, i.e. Cisco 3750 be? Anyone could help give me the proper cisco port settings to enable a active/standby config?

You'll need to configure the 3 ports as a Port Channel with LACP enabled in order the the Flex-10 modules to aggregate the 3 ports together.

Exactly how to do that... I'll leave to a Cisco expert. (or google). I havent touched Cisco IOS in years.
