Expand RAID in NetWare 6.5 SP5 running on Proliant DL380 G4

I have a customer running the above config and is running out of disk space. The have 3x72 GB disks setup in a RAID 5 config today on the existing internal Array Controller. They've bought addtional 2x72 GB disks that they wanna add to the existing RAID.

Now question is how do I do this? I've never had to do this before. I've read the readme for cpqonlin.nlm and from what I can gather, it's just put in the two new disks. Start cpqonlin.nlm, select Expand Array, point to the two new disks. And this should take care of things. Question is how do I then add the new space to the existing Logical Drive?

I assume that when all is done it'll show up as free space in NetWare that I can then just add to the NetWare volume needing it?

Any tips are more than welcome.
