Correct SmartStart for DL380 G5 with currently installed ESX??

I have ESX 3.0.2 installed on our DL380 G5 server.
I understand that it's possible to add storage and a hot spare with the ACU...but what I have found so far doesn't really provide anything useful about what to do with an ESX server that already has ESX on the first array and data on the second array, to which VMs are already stored.
Do I just reboot the server with the SmartStart CD??
I have a 7.70 SmartStart CD that was included, or should I download a newer SmartStart, and if so, which number and version??
Thank you, Tom
