swapping small drives with larger ones

I have nine 18.2 GB ultra2 scsi drives that I'm replacing with nine 36.4 GB ultra3 scsi drives. Raid 5 array. I've just replaced one of the 18 gig drives with a 36.4 gig, the container icon on the drive stopped blinking after about 2 hours, but the arrow icon is still lit across all of the drives. Is it safe to go ahead and swap out another drive?

Run the Array Configuration Utility to get status on the drives , before replacing the next drive .
