Good example:  Sun x2100.  I'm *so* glad that Sun decided to use the 
good-old-standard "spud" brackets on this system (you personally know
this machine as "staging").  It came with a single 80G SATA drive with
an ugly WHITE spud bracket - the drive slots in just like SCA disks do.

I quickly replaced that with two 500G SATA drives and purple spud brackets
out of a D1000 (for color).  Worked just fine.
