I don't have any experience with LPAR, but if I understand your question
correctly, you should be able to do this.  The disks are added in two steps.
First, add them to the RAID set (installer may do this for you).  If this is as
far as you go, they will sit there and spin forever without being used by the
system.  The second step is to add them to an ASP.  I assume that is part of the
LPAR setup.

   I'm adding 5 (4 Gig) drives and a new controller card to my 720, but I don't
   want the system to
   use them. We are upgrading to an 820 next month so I can run an LPAR and I
   what to use the new
   disk for the LPAR only. Can I add them now or do I need to wait ?
