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.
