How to figure out if you have a 1x6 or other backplane

Currently working on a Dell Poweredge 2600 running 3 36gig drives on a Raid 5 setup. I was given a 300gig drive to install. The drive will be put in as a non Raid drive. Operating system is Pro 2000 Server. I need to figure out what kind of backplane I have before I move further. How do I figure out if I have a 1x6.

The 2x3 backplane is the 1x6 with a daughter card installed. Look for the card if it's there it's  2x3 if it's not it's 1x6. Here's info including a pic of where its located.
