Teaming Network Nics

I have a HP DL380 with 4 x 1GB network nics.  There is a HP utility to team the nics into one 4GB port.
I tried this but if anything I thought the accesss was slower. I didnt do anything at the switch end , all 4 wires go into one HP switch a 2910al-48G  (J9147A)  48 x 1GB ports.
Would making the 4 cat6 cables into a combined aggregate be better than 4 seperate links?
If so ..
How do I make a 4 way aggrergate on a 2910al switch ?

I tried it once and the nework ground to a halt !  probably introduced a loop.

Thanks
Steve

Common mistake is to team on the server but not setup the switch, or use LACP and have both switch and server in passive mode so neither end sets up the team. Transmit load balancing is safest as it doesn't need any setup on the switch.
