Thanks for any help.
when looking at /dev/mdXX the "md" is short for "metadisk".
that being said, if you have your new devices under /dev/mdX you should be able to use vgextend /dev/mdx or similar.. i would recommend doing this instead of adding them directly into a logical volume as it gives you more flexibility and im not sure if you can add raw raid devices directly into an LV
