Using a HP MSA20 disk array on a Poweredge 1950

Using a HP MSA20 disk array on a Poweredge 1950

Any help here would be appreciated, I have googled for hours and not found anything useful!

I have a MSA20 HP 12 bay SATA storage array, it has a U320 SCSI connection.  I also have a Dell Poweredge 1950 which I want to connect the MSA20 to.

Can anyone tell me what card i need to do this, I heard that you can use the HP controller cards, and by taping over one of the pins on the connector, it will allow the lock out that stops you using the HP cards in anything but a HP server.

Any help would be most appreciated!
