migrating from RAID 1 to RAID 5

we have a ML350 G3 server with a 641 array controller running Netware 6.5. We are currently using (2) 72 GIG drives in a RAID 1 mirror. We are running out of room and want to add an additional 72 GIG drive and migrate to a RAID 5 configuation.
What is the easiest way to accomplish this?

Have a look at the "MOdify an Exisiting Configuration Using the Configuration Wizards" section.

There should be the info you require there.

p.s.

The conversion will require 'an amount'(?) of free disk space. So you may have to move some data around to achieve this.

Re: migrating from RAID 1 to RAID 5

I looked at the user guide, but it appears I will to delete the current array and configure the new one. By doing that will I lose all the data on the server, if so is their a way to do this without losing the data on the drives.

thanks for the help
