After putting the 3rd drive in your raid0 set there is no way to convert it.
You will have to blow it all away and reconfigure it or get a 4th drive and 
convert and add it to the array at the same time.

Subject: afacli - removing a disk from a strip set

I wanted to have two disks, plus a third for a RAID 5 setup.  Each disk is
33GB.  They are all now in one container in a stripe set of 99GB.  How can I
convert this to a RAID 5 configuration of 66GB?  I'm running RH 9 on a PE
2650 with PERC3/Di.  I can't find any way to remove a disk from a container,
nor how to convert a stripe set to RAID5 and specify the extra parity disk.
