Add extra Hard Drive - ProLiant ML370

My server storage is getting low. It is a proliant LM370 configured for RAID5. With 4 (36.4gb wide pluggable ultra3 15k drive) with smart Array 5i plus controller. The drives are configured volume c: (operating system 4gb) and E: data (97.8gb) both are dynamic. The operating system is windows 2000.
I have two empty bays. Could I add extra hard drive and increase the volume of E:? I’m getting confused here. Some articles say it could be done and some say you can not make a stripe set bigger or extend it to another disk. I have not deal with this issue before, any help would be appreciated. How to is even better

Yes, you can do an online expansion using ACU, and then expand the WIndows volume using Diskpart.exe (Download from Microsoft)
