I have a Dell 2950 raid 1. I cloned the 73gig drive to a 146gig drive. The clone worked fine except it shows the 146gig drive as a 73 gig drive. How can I increase the partition to use all of the 146 gigs?

RAID 1 - what size is each drive in the array?

Brew
connect 146GB to a SATA port of your MOBO, make sure it;s AHCI.
Go to Disk Manager - expand the partition to use al of unused space
Done!

What happens when I put it back into server and boot? will the raid see it as a 146 gig drive?

The new drives are 146gigs. When I boot into server 2003 the "C" drive is still 73gigs even thought the drive are 146gigs.

Will it rebuild the second drive ? Or, do I need to extend the partition on it also?

It should rebuilt the with the 2nd drive...
but to make sure, use "diskpart" to clean the 2nd HDD before let it rebuilt
