DL380 G5 with Smart Array P400 Card.

Hi I have a couple questions I hope someone can answer.
We have a DL380 G5 server with the Smart Array P400 card. IT looks like this card will support SATA drives I want to make sure that is correct and also is there a Max size limit on the drives. I did research and it looks like the drives in that server are 2.5" . The server is a diaster recovery for a small company so it is offsite. Currently it has 2 drives in Raid 1+0(boot drive) then 6 drives in raid 5.. I was hoping to replace thoose six 72 gb SAS drives with 6 500 gb Sata drives. Any information would be helpful or if anyone has done this. Thanks

Matt
