[rescue] Sun machines supporting half-height hard drives

Someone mentioned that a Sun E250 might be ideal for my uses.

That leads to a question:

Which Sun machines can handle 1.6" (half height) hard drives?

I have a pair of idle 18GB Fujitsu drives that I'd like to use for the
OS.  They are 68-pin SCSI though.  Could I use them or is that out of
the question.  Yes, I'd want them internal.

My memory tells me the E series machines only have the SCA backplane and
no 68-pin busses, but I figured I'd check here.
