One of the 3 HDs in my RAID-5 array, on my Exchange Server in a 
Windows 2000 Server network, died.  (I am using a web-based interface 
to read/write email.)  I have been able to determine which HD has 
failed, gotten its make and model number, extra.  However, I have 
never done anything like replace a hard drive in a RAID array.  I am 
out of my depth here.  Besides simply pulling the bad HD out and 
putting a new one in, what else am I supposed to do?  I have been 
looking through MSDN, without much help.  And now I am checking 
Google, but am getting mostly websites who want to sell me RAID 
solutions, rather than anything that tells me how to resolve my 
problem.  The server involved is a DC, but I am not sure if that 
matters or not.  I can bring the machine up, so the OS must be 
installed on the primary partition, whereas the partition that has 
Exchange on it is on a secondary partition.

So, I could use some help on this.
