Hot disk change.

I have a "PowerEdge 1950" with a "PERC 5/i Integrated" controller on 
"RAID-1" with two "232.25GB" disks.

I need some more disk space, so I bought two 2TB disks.

What I would like to know is if it's possible to replace one HD at a 
time, trusting the controller to sync all data with no loss!?

The OS is a Debian Linux with ext3 fs, so after changing both disks I 
could use resize2fs to use the extra capacity.

Anyone already tried something like that?

Any tip is appreciated.
