SCSI and SATA are two completely different animals, with their own 
controllers and cabling;  although SATA has some features and 
performance that used to come only with SCSI.

I think Adaptec makes an external drive unit that takes hot-swappable 
drives of both sorts in any slot.  But being Adaptec, I'm pretty sure 
it won't meet your "cheap" criteria!
