Smart Array 3200 controller and adding drives to array

I have a Compaq ml370G1 server running NT4.0sp6a. We currently 3 drives (9.1 10K hot swappable raid 5, 123065-B22) that we wish to add 3 more drives to the array. we do not care that we have to create a new partition. Can we add 3 18.2GB 15K (188122-B22) drives to this array? Yes I know we will lose the extra 9.1GB of drive space on the larger drives.

secound question - would it be better to swap out each drive one at a time and let the array rebuild itself (same to drive numbers)?

thanks
