ML350g3 sa532 controller RAID extend

Originally a RAID 5 setup, approx 67 gigs, using 3x 36 gig 10,000rpm drives.
Roughly an 8 gig C partition, and a 60 gig D partition.

One by one..replaced each drive with a 146 gig drive, 15,000rpm....several days apart.

Latest BIOS on the server, I believe the latest BIOS for the 532 controller. And installed the latest HP Raid Config Utility.

Just wanting to be sure of the looking to "absorb" that extra 300 gigs of free space that the Raid Config Utility shows. I have the logical drive..and I wish to "extend" it? Gives me all sorts of warnings about Windows 2000. This server was Small Biz Server 2000 which has been upgraded to Small Biz Server 2003. She is running both C and D partitions as Dynamic Disks from a prior software mirror.

It seems to only allow me to extend the size 280 gigs..even though it shows 300 gigs unused.

Nervous about hitting that "Save Setting" icon to kick it into gear.

Input on things to look out for, caution here, careful of this or that, make sure you "this or that", etc?
