What you did is configure the new disks to "replace" the current
partitions. The are not overwritten but 'overmounted', which means that
/usr for example becomes mounted on the raid5 volume instead of the old
raid0 volume. Please read the screen's carefully and for example create
a structure under /mnt where you can temporary attach the new
partitions. Please ask around on the questions at FreeBSD.org mailinglist
in case you need more assistence.
