Add hard drives, mirror drives for IBM Series 225

I have a IBM Series 225 with LSI Logic 1030  Scsi Disk Drive with a LSI Logic 1020 /1030 Ultra 320 Scsi Adapter.  Adaptic AHA-2940 UW PCI Scsi controller and Intell XeonTM CPU 2.80 GHZ and Intel(R) Xeon TM CPU 2.80 GHX and 2.5 GB Ram.  

 I have purchased additional drives and would like to mirror the drives.  What is the best way to go about this.? It is a production server with Windows 2003, MS Sql 2000 and a large application database and a web application running on it.  

The xSeries 225 gives us six hot-swappable SCSI drive bays along with four standard bays. With a maximum hard drive capacity of 880GB, you won't run out of room anytime soon. Also inside the server, you'll find an AGP slot (unnecessary, given the integrated graphics) as well as four PCI-X slots and one standard PCI slot.
There are 2 drives in right now.  C: is 15BG and E: is 35 GB.  We would like to add 2 more drives and mirror them.

I would also check to see if any of the present controllers are RAID controllers.

It has an Adaptec AHA-294 UW PCI SCSI and a LSI Logic 1020/1030 Ultra 320 SCSI - not sure if either of these is a RAID controller.  I think they are scsi controllers.  Would it identify itself as a raid controller?

Check the Vendor's site for exact spcs.
