Note: This method will only work for power. RPM monitoring might be messed up.

Cut 2 inches off the plug end of one of the fans, so you are left with a fan with bare leads, and a 3 pin plug with about 2-3 inches of wire attached. Do this to both fans. Strip the leads on both the fans. Twist each color wire together with the other (i.e. black to black, etc.) so you have the two fans wired together. Solder each of the twist leads so they are permanent. Now strip each lead on the plug. Solder each plug lead to the appropriate twisted lead. Now you should have a Y shape, like this, sorta:

plug

|------Fan 1
|

Fan 2

Now cover all bare leads with electrical tape or heatshrink, and you're done.
