This is another piece of mis-information. You can have different sized drives for raid 5, of course it is not really worth it. The thing is all of the drives will only use the same amount of space as the smallest drive. For example I currently have a raid 5 running and it is using 3 200GB drives and 1 250GB drive, but that 250GB drive will only acts as a 200GB drive.
