can u add a hotspare into an existing raid 5 drive array.

Hi can a hotspare be added to an existing raid 5 array that does not have a hotspare configured in it at the moment ?

HP are replacing a faulty drive i was going to use in 4 drive set of 3 with 1 as a spare. during the initial install of windows one of the new drives develped a fault. so ive now installed windows with just raid 5 with no spare.
