How to add harrdrive to Windows Server 2003 (small business server)?

It's usually very simple to add harddrives on PC's. Plug in the harddrive and reboot - and then you can find the new harddrive with the "disk manager", where you can format or make partition on it.

Is it done in some different way on Small Business Server (win 2003)? The server has "hot swap"-setup, so I could just plug it in while the server was running. I can see some lights going on for a short while on the harddrive, but then the lights go off. And I am not able to see any of the new harddrives in disk manager. It doesnt help either to reboot. Do I have to make the new harddrives availible in the BIOS? Or what am I missing out on here?
