[rescue] q on Sun x64 hardware - SAS and SATA drives?

I have some older equipment coming out of the colo and want to
re-purpose it.

Has anyone ever actually added a 2.5inch SATA drive to e.g. a Sun x4200
with built-in SAS controller, and had it work?  I was thinking of the
Seagate Momentus drives that have a few GB of flash on them to improve
write speeds. 

I know that the spec "says" SATA drives will work with SAS but would
like to hear about actual hands-on experience with them.
