CAn I disable RAID on a DEll powervault 770n server

\015 I have just purchased a Dell Powervault 770n for cheap. I am wondering if I can disable the raid configuration and put in different size SCSI hard drives as I have 2 X 18 GB 15K currently configured as 1 logical drive and a spare 36 GB 10 k drive.\015
