Can Linux mount two partitions -jointly- into one folder?
Meaning, files are write into that folder are saved spanned over the two disks.
What file format would that be?

No, at least not with conventional file systems. Software or hardware RAID would allow concatentating or mirroring partitions for increased space or redundancy, respectively. When using RAID there'd only be a  single mount point.

Would Software Raid work with two harddisks that are not equal? Or would equally sized partitions be suff.?
Which software would you recommend for a linux suse 7.1?

Software RAID operates at the partition level. So the only requirement for a concatentenated volume, if you simply want more space than either partition alone, is that you have two or more partitions. If you want redundancy, i.e., mirroring, then you need two partitions of equal size.
