SATA drives in PowerEdge 2850?

Can I put 4 or 6 SATA drives in a PowerEdge 2850? Or is SCSI the only
choice for that system? I want to build a 3Ware SATA RAID based server. 

(I am OK with buying the SATA drives and installing them myself, I
just need to know if the PowerEdge 2850 chassis physically accepts
SATA drives... From the description on the website I can't tell if it
has some kind of SCSI-only backplane)

Please CC replies to me as I am not subscribed.
