Expanding RAID 5 Array to Additional Disks

We have 2 x Compaq Proliant 6000's which are clustered using MSCS on Win NT4.0. The machines are connected to a Compaq Fibre Channel Array through a Compaq Fibre Channel Hub. We currently have 6 x 18.2 GB Drives in two groups of 3 in the Fibre Channel Array. We need to add two more 18.2 GB drives, one to each group, and expand the RAID 5 array to include the new disks. Are there any documents available which detail the steps necessary to carry out this upgrade.
