Not too bad. I was lucky and all of mine worked. Just print out the
manual and make sure everything's configured correctly. I have the
8-drive versions. I put the CDC drives on a separate controller because
apparently there's "issues" with mixing Eagles and CDC drives on the
same chain. I only have 0 & 1 plugs for the CDC drives, I didn't want
to have to "spin" them in order to boot the 11/70.

My DS570 came just as a CPU. I've configured everything else myself.
The cabinet that the Eagles are in is from an 11/780 (I have a lot) so
while physically correct, the color scheme is wrong.
