At the most generic level (Which is all we can give since you
don't say what OS you are using)....
Use whatever backup tools you use for your daily backups, create
the new partitions, create the filesystems on them, put on a
bootblock, restore the data from your backup medium, do what
you need to do to sort out the device ID's, shut down and boot
from the new disks.
Some of these steps can be short circuited on some versions of
unix on some hardware.
Some of them can be much more complicated than they look depending
on the hardware and software configuration used to present the
filesystems to the server.
Hope this helps
