Ah, that's fairly straightforward. I'd get myself something LSI 
SAS2008-based (Dell H200/H310, IBM M1015, Fujitsu D2607), flash it with IT 
firmware and hook up the drives with an SFF-8087 to SATA cable. Of course, 
that's all based on reading the Solaris HCL and Oracle don't exactly make 
it clear whether it's supported on Solaris/SPARC or x86 (or am I reading it

I read your earlier message and looked for the 11.4 supported models but 
couldn't seem to find it (only 11.3).
