Windows Server 2003 Hardware and Software Raid Compatability

I have a Windows 2003 server with a hardware raid 5 partitioned for C (OS and program files) and D (data).  New programs are increasing data far beyond current drives.  I am thinking of adding a pair of 1TB drivers using sofware mirror for data.  

Can hardware raid on one set of disks and software raid on another set of disks operate together?  I'm looking for a concrete answer, not an "I think this work."

Thanks in advance,
Leon

Yes.  I've set it up.  Software is slower, of course.  But it does work.

Are you planning to Expand the Data drive using the additonal drives (using Software Raid)??
