replacing a failed RAID component

I'm using RAIDFRAME in a RAID 1 configuration. One of the disks has failed and needs to be replaced; the question is how, precisely, I do it. More specifically, how do I prepare the new disk? My assumption is that I have to set up the proper fdisk label (including the boot block); I then have to use disklabel to make the 'e' partition of type RAID. The last thing I should do is use 'raidctl -R' to reconstruct the RAID set.

Do I need to do anything else? Do I need to do something to initialize the replacement disk's RAID stuff?
