SmartArray 5300 RAID expansion

We currently have a SmartArray5300 in a Proliant ML530 running NetWare 5.1SP6. One cage has four drives, the other is empty. Of the four drives, three are in a RAID-5 and the other is reserved as a hot spare. If we were to add two more drives, could we extend the array across the two extra drives without having to lose any data?

Let me know if you need more information.
