You got a killer deal on that V210, and I wouldn't complain about paying 
$20 more.

The linked to bracket is what you need.  Those brackets have been used 
on a lot of machines from Ultra 1 through Ultra 80, as well as Sun 711 
arrays, and various enterprise machines like E250/E220r/E420r, and of 
course the V210 and V240s.

One thing to watch for is the screws.  A lot of screws that fit in the 
screw hole have a head thick enough to impede inserting a disk into the 
machine.  I was just banging my head on finding screws with thin enough 
heads to fit Sunday night.
