SCSI Dual Channel

I'm sorry I have no idea about SCSI dual channel functionality. Please someone kindly offer me several instructions, appreciate!!
1. My Server is DL380 with duplex SCSI channel support(Default is simplex). If I just want to enforce the RAID5 on my 3 SCSI 36.4G HDD, should I populate these 3 HDD into different channel??
2. For management, should I populate the tape drive and HDD in different channel??
3. May I enable the simplex mode for a while then switch to the duplex later??

Many thanks for your answers of these Qs!!

BR,

Allan
