RAID level migration and FreeBSD slice/partitions

I would like to add 2 SCSI disks to my RAID controller (an Intel SRCU42X, 
the new disks are Seagate Cheetahs 36GB) and migrate to RAID 5. At the 
moment the controller has 2 disks attached to it (also 2x Seagate Cheetah 
36GB) in RAID 0.

According to the documentation of the controller this should be possible, 
but my question is what happens with the size of the slice and partitions 
of FreeBSD? Do they grow or do I have a lot of empty space after the 

Hope someone knows the answer.
