Add drives to existing array Adaptec 2400A


Hello,
I've been searching like crazy but I can't seem to find a way to add drives to an existing array RAID 5 (raidutil -E) on the Adaptec 2400A hardware RAID controller? I wanna add a fourth disk to a 3 disk array and incorporate it in the RAID 5 stripe.
Does anyone know a way to do this?
Thanks, Kent.

You probably need to press Ctrl-A at startup.
