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.
