Extend diskpool

Hi!!
I have a compaq 3000 with Array 3200 controller.
Attached to that we have external disccabinett with 9 discs. Question is, If we need to extend the amount of discs, can we just buy 10 more and plug them into server (internal)?? Is there anything to think about before doing this (except backup)???
Are there enuoght SCSI-channels for total of 19 discs (on 2 channels)???

Please send me your advice and experiences

Daniel,
The controller is dual-channel so the 19 drives are within the 14-per-channel configuration. Just make sure that the PL3000 drive backplane is using the simplex connection (which it does by default).
