You'll need to get the jumpers, since they will share the same SCSI ID without them. The lower values of the ID have Higher priority on the bus, so you'll want them set as 0,1,2 and 3. You'll need 4 jumpers for the drive settings and perhaps more for other settings on the drive. ID 0 can be bootable, but with the number of drives and a lower interface speed controller, it'd probably be better to run the OS on a either a different controller or get a faster controller. Make sure that you are using a terminator on the cable and the settings for termination power are correct for the type of terminator you're using. I haven't found a source yet on the jumpers, but will look a bit later today.

The only places I have actually had luck finding the correct size jumpers were at computer fairs, and at 1 local computer repair and sales store. If you have one locally available, make sure you bring one of the drives with you, so you get the correct size jumpers. Some of the ones that fit on SCSIs are very small.
Get good quality cables w/termination preinstalled on the end.
