changing an array configuration

I have an ML370 w/ a 431 array controller. Until recently, I had (3) 36 gig drives in a RAID5 array. I added (3) more 36 gig drives to the array but am having some problems getting Novell 5.1 to use them as I want.

My current array has all 6 drives online as one logical drive. I currently have four partitions on the logical drive. They are, System, DOS, Netware, NSS. I need to create Novell Storage Groups before I can add the space to any of my NSS Volumes. In retrospect, I think I should have added the drives as a second logical drive and created my Storage Groups over there as I am limited to four partitions on my existing drive.

How can I pull the recently added drives from my logical drive and remove them from the array?
