Upgrading Drives in Raid on Windows 2000 small business server

Hi,
I have a windows 2000 small business server with two 40 gig IDE Drives in a raid 1 configuration (30 gigs total storage).  The drives  are configured into two volumes (15 and 20 gigs).  

I would like to increase the size of the drives, but I need help figuring out how to extend the size of the partitions once the new drives are in place.  I have looked into partitioning software, but I have not found any that can handle the raid configuration.

What would be the best way to upgrade the drives and extend the partitions?

Thanks for the help.

The Drives are using 2000 software RAID?

I believe it is a hardware raid device from Highpoint Technologies (HPT370 ATA100) embedded on the motherboard.
