Ultra320 drives in Proliant DL360 G1

Does anyone know if the new Ultra320 drives are compatible with the G1 Proliant DL360?

The info on them says:
HP U320 technology will be backward compatible to U3 and U2 interface technologies. As before, U320 will plug & play nicely with previous generations of technology. When mixing U320 and U3 or U2 drives all the drives in the box will operate at the lowest common denominator of drive or at the interface speed of the backplane or controller in the system.

Does the DL360 G1 use U2 or U3 technology?

Cheers

.
The DL360 G1 has the Integrated Smart Array Controller - this is U2 controller. The U320 drive is compatible with the server; only thing is that it will operate @ U2 speeds.
There’s your problem!!! This thing is set to EVIL!
