Thanks. Checked it out now, and it seems it is not possible to expand the 
array. I have to delete it and then make a new one. I thought it was a 
similar HP-server that I did this with in Windows, but it was probably a 
server with a better RAID-controller.

Well well, seems I have to backup and restore. Not sure if i bother about 
that, but thanks for your help anyway :-)
