Any SCSI drive with a 80 pin SCA connector will do, below is a 300GB
Hitachi drive added.

You can also using a SAS adapter(from LSIlogic) add SAS/SATA drives but
not boot from them I think.

pci 66 MB/PCI3 LSILogic,sas-pci1000,50 (scs+ LSI,1064

I have two LSI 3041X models and so far no luck with booting from them in
either my Blade 2000 or 2500. While booting is supported (3041X have OBP
firmwares) it gives PCI bus errors. This seems to be a Solaris problem
as I can boot OpenBSD 4.5 from it in my Blade 2500.

Regards
Andreas
