Question How do I add a spare to existing software RAID 5 ?


I have a nice 3 disk RAID 5 software array that's running great. I now have the money to add a spare. I looked around but couldn't find info on how to add a spare to an existing RAID 5 software array?

I assume there's something involving raidtab, but I'm not sure what it is.
