Cannot Allocate Unallocated space!

I have a W2000 server w/ 203GB of unallocated space.  The hardware is 4 72.4GB SCSI drives that are striped w/ raid 5.  When I right click 'create partition' is greyed out.

In disk manager the icon has a red circle w/ slash.  Status is 'online' and type is 'unknown.'

I have two other partitions that lie on 2 34 GB drives labeled C and E both being primary.

You will probably need to right click, and initialize, or format the disk, before you can actually assign it a drive letter and use it
