ml350 g3 hdd replacment with raid 5

I have a Win 2K server with raid 5 setup. 1 hdd has failed and need to be replaced. Are there any instructions which needs to be followed in order to safe guard all the existing setup and data on the server?

If the red LED is on the failed drive, it is safe to remove it and replace with a new drive, it will start rebuilding automaticaly when clicked into position

There is no need to power your server down, do it asap just in case another drive fails as then you will be stuffed.
