That's strange since we can use SAS or SATA drive in Dell's special carrier.
Mechanically the connector position of SAS and SATA is the same except
for part in the middle of the data and power from my observations 
and sticking it into a SAS enclosure.

Now with 2.5" SAS back plane it is hard to stick a 3.5" SATA driver
in there.  The 2.5" SAS disk are nice and light :-)

If Kip is in the Bay Area still we could probably get him a real SAS
drive.  I'll have to check on it.  I'd still try a SATA drive since they
are cheap.
