SOURCE: raid w/ hard drive defunct
Well lets make some assumptions
1. You have a Raid 5 System
2. You only have 3 drives in the Raid ARRAY
3. Only 1 drive has failed
To fix the problem you should only need to Replace the Failed Drive
Then start the raid management software or bios
Rebuild the array
If you have more than 1 drive failed in a RAID 5, and still must recover the data it is possible. But very expensive. Still fixable however.

SOURCE: Cant create additional raid
Check this for specs:
The raid controller onboard is dual channel. Are you using a serveraid card as well? How have you configured the existing arrays? You may need to use the other channel if not already in use. Are the new drives ultra320 drives of same speed?

You can add drives to the array through the scsi management software, then you can extend any dynamic partitions that don't have the OS on them. I don't think you can extend the array if it contains the OS. You may need to use the disk management utility in windows to make the partitions 'dynamic disks' before you can extend the data partitions
