Need help with Raid setup.

Greetings.

I got 5 x 72GB 2.5 Single Port HP SAS Drives.

In the HP Insight Array managment tool i want to setup the following configuration.

Array 1
Drive 1 & 2 = Raid 1 + 0 (i have no problems in doing this)

Array 2
Drive 3 & 4 & 5 = Raid 5 (here is where i have the problem)

I cant choose Raid 5 or any other raid option except raid 0.

Why is this? i should be able to choose raid 5 with 3 disks only right?

I even have tried to create one Array with all 5 disks in it, but still i cant choose to use Raid 5.

Any help is apriciated.

Regards.
