How to trunk/Etherchannel Cisco 2960-XR and HP Procurve 4204vl

I am trying to trunk 2 ports on the Cisco 2960 and the HP Procurve 4204 and wanted to know the best possible way to go about it.  Do I need to trunk both ports on both switches first, then plug in?  Is using cisco network assistant easier for the Cisco 2960?  Do I have to use CLI for the HP?

Any thoughts?

First you have to define "trunk".  The term means different things in Cisco and HP.

Are you wanting to send multiple VLANs over a link?  Or aggregate physical links together into a virtual link?
