assuming your server has room for more drives and sata or sas ports, 
sure.    physically add the disks, use mdraid to put them in a mirror or 
raid5/6 or whatever, use vgcreate to define a new volumegroup from that 
raid, then use lvcreate to create logical volumes on that volume group, 
which you can put file systems on, and add those file systems to your 
/etc/fstab, then mount them.

it would only do that if you explicitly told it to.
