Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You need to use raidhotadd to add the new drive to the set. Once this is done it will start to rebuild sliently in background. You'll need to create the necessary partitions before you add the drive. I would suggest you have a look at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Software-RAID-HOWTO-6.html the HOWTO is a little old but still useful.
Uhm... Thats rather odd. I was going to suggest that you check the remaining drive to see how big the partition is, and create one of the same size on the new disk. What command are you using to start fdisk?
