 I'd be able to work on this server right now and add the second disk when
it arrives without reinstalling everything.

 I'm not complaining or anything.. I know it's not a commom situation and
I'm already looking for something that doesn't involve such hack (suck as
waiting the second disk).

 It's late and I can't think about anything that would make my system
installed on ad4 to become ar0 (ad4+ad6) without much work and another
spare disk as a temporary storage.
