Depends on what is on Hard Disk 0.

If this drive holds the SYS: Volume of the NetWare server, which is kinda like the root (/) partition in UNIX/Linux, then you're going to have to re-install.

Alternatively, you can simply add the drive to the existing system (if there are sufficient connectors, power leads, bays, etc) and create a new Volume or expand an existing one.

Could do with some more details of any raid configs you have, scsi/ide etc etc.. If you don't want to reinstall you could image the server using Storage Manager from http://www.portlock.com then change the discs and image back.

It  would also help to know what your NSS partition/volume configuration is, and whether or not you have traditional volumes.

NSS makes it easier to expand volumes, but won't necessarily make it easy to swap out a disk drive with a bigger one.

You can mirror to a bigger physical disk with traditional, but  that doesn't  necessarily expand the volume.   Again, it helps to know what your current hardware / partition / volume / filesystem configuration is.
