The rebuild is done through the raid card you are using.
With Adaptec cards you can do it and the cards BIOS level, or with the Adaptec 
management software.
As long as the array is still limping about, the rebuild goes pretty smooth.

Subject: [windows2000] How do I rebuild a RAID-5 array?


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.
