You can use ln -s
look man ln

NOTES  A symbolic link to a directory behaves differently than  you might  expect  in  certain  cases.  While an ls(1) on such a link displays the files in the pointed-to directory, an  `ls-l' displays information about the link itself:

example% ln -s dir line
example% ls link
file1 file2 file3 file4
example% ls -l link
lrwxrwxrwx  1 user            7 Jan 11 23:27 link -> dir

Or do you mean how do I create one mountable volume out of these two partitions?

To do this you need disk management software such as Veritas Volume Manager Or Solstice Disksuite. I think disksuite comes bundled with Solaris know, and allows you to `glue` partitions together to create a single mountable device.

Veritas Volume Manager is a little more complicated in so far as it is not limited by the number of partitions available on a disk.
