and then following the links to add your HD, partion, the disk, run newfs to the
filesystem and then mount the filesystem.

You want to add a third disk and it already has data on it that you want to keep?  If so, you obviously don't want to partition the drive, create filesystems, etc.  There are some instructions, albeit brief, for adding a drive with data on it at the link posted by yuzh.  There may be more detailed instructions elsewhere on

 But if the drive has data on it, but the drive hasn't been configured in this system before, where did the data come from?  That will affect how, or if, you can get OpenServer to read the data on that drive.

If you have data in the HD, after you add the HD, when you run divvy to the new HD, don't change anything in the division table (otherwise, the data will lose), just
exit from divvy, and then you can mount the filesystem.
