only 1 drive per connector, no jumpers.

Note that multilane/port multipliers allow multiple drives to be connected to one serial ATA port. This is commonly used with external SATA enclosures.

Personally I use a eSATA enclosure with up to 4 disks. I currently use only two disks, each connected to a eSATA PC Express card, giving me (in theory) 3 Gbps speed to 1 TB of storage from my notebook. My enclosure uses individual cables for each SATA disk.
