Dear All,

I just had a RAID1 disk failure (45 GB IBM DTLA-307045 giving uncorrectable
data errors).

These disks are no longer available (surprise, surprise!), so I will 
probably get a bigger disk or two to replace the dead one.

What is the easiest way of moving the RAID1 system to two bigger disks?
My computer has no room for all the disks (1+2+non-raid disks)
simultaneously. :-(  I guess it would be easiest just to drop a 60 GB disk
in the machine and 'raidctl -R' it .. but then I would lose the 15 gigs
and still be limited to 45 GB of storage (which doesn't seem to be too
much these days).
