Dell PE 2900 Adding space to Drive C with Raid

Dell PE 2900 Adding space to Drive C with Raid

Ok i must be missing something here... I have a Dell PowerEdge 2900 with a Perc 6/i Raid card and Windows Server 2003.

Dell set it up at the factory with 3 drives set up in Raid 5 but only 12 GB on C: and a hell of a lot on D: well with some of the updates and so on C is almost full, so I decided to fix that... but how??

I was able to use a live version of Linux and gparted to move the D partition to make space after the C, but it wont let me grow the C partition. I have also installed OMSA and can not figure out how to do it there either.

i put two more drives in, and thye have a green light when the Bios scans them but blinking amber when windows loads, or PERC bios....

if i could just add space to C I would be golden.

 any input?
