Link aggregation on an HP switch? How?

Hi guys,

I've bought some transceivers and plugged them into our HP 3500 procurve switch. It's for usage with fibre optic cables. I've plugged two transceivers to each HP 3500. Let's say we have two of those.

Seeing as each port where the transceiver is plugged into is 1Gigabit, is there a way I can aggregate the two ports? (so that basically, I can have a total of 2 Gigabits)?

And how would you do that on a technical level?

Many thanks
