Moving Hard drive and adding larger hard drives to netware server with a Smart-4200 array controller

Proliant ML530 with Smart Array Controller (4200) running Netware 5.1. Currently has 4 x 9.1 Gb drives in lower drive cage and 1 x 9.1 Gb drive in upper cage (don't ask me why ?). Array controller is setup as one array with all 5 drives in a RAID 5 configuration. I would like to add 3 x 18.2 Gb drives to the server. How do I get the 1 x 9.1 Gb drive down into the lower drive cage and have the Array Controller and Netware recognize it ? Once that is done what are the steps to add the 3 x 18.2 Gb drives again in the RAID 5 configuration and then add them to the SYS: volume ?
Tips ? Thoughts ? Concerns ? Warnings ?

Thanks, Doug
