    If I install another drive in my mac pro, what will the Eject key on my keyboard do under Leopard?

    Eject the top drive.

    Option+Eject does the bottom.

    This from not having a Mac Pro, though. :D

    I'm fairly certain that this is how it works, but if not, there is an eject menu that shows up in the Menu Bar that lets you choose the drive to eject.

    I was expecting someone with one to post hereafter and confirm/deny my point.

    I have a spare drive that I'm going to install, I just wondered if the eject key would eject both drives.

    It would be cool to have script that lets you tap once for top drive, tap twice for bottom drive.

    I don't know if that would work anymore, since Apple changed the Eject button to only eject while being held in... 10.4.9, I believe.

    To prevent accidental ejections, I guess.
