Growing RAID5 (using RAID0).

I've been thinking about this and I'm wondering if it is possible to do
something like the following:

  I have an existing RAID5 volume, comprised of just 3 120GB disks.
However, I've just bought three more 250GB disks that I also want to

  I would still like a single volume, comprising the size of the two
RAID5 volumes.  Could this be possible through the use of RAID0?

i.e. can I create a RAID0 volume from two RAID5 volumes?

  I understand this might sound a little odd but if it works it would be
the ideal solution for me.  I would also be interested in hearing how
other people might have overcome this problem of growing a large RAID5

  Thanks a lot,
