We also have an Eagle drive as disk 1 on a 3600 that is a bit 'funny'.
Every time the machine is booted, disk 1 complains that it's not 
mounted.  Disk 2 has no problem, and the boot file contains Mount 1 and
mount 2 commands.  To date this has been but a minor annoyance, since
someone has to <resume> from the error trap.  Besides, we all have trouble
getting up and out in the morning.
