its tricky to do this with a  hotswap bay, because the 2.5" drive's 
connectors are the same distance from the edge as the 3.5", so you have 
to secure the disk without anything between the near side and drive, yet 
the screw holes aren't even close to in the same lace. I managed to 
kludge this with a HP gen6 bay.

HOWEVER, Supermicro DOES have 2.5" drive trays that fit many of their 
hotswap 3.5" bays.   thats by far the best way to do it.
