[Gluster-users] Downgrading OS while keeping files

What if I create a gluster system consisting of a number of bricks (say 
4) like

Brick1: k01:/mnt/raid6
Brick2: k02:/mnt/raid6
Brick3: k03:/mnt/raid6
Brick4: k04:/mnt/raid6

and if the mount points on each brick contains files I want to 
"incorporate" into the gluster file system. How can this be achieved?
