Tiger starts to index my fire wire backup drives

Whenever I connect my backup drive (6partitions), Spotlight in Tiger starts to index the drive, and I don't like this at all. When I configure Spotlight in it's preferences not to do this, the indexing stops, until I smart update the partitions again. (actually this is clear to me, since the orginal drive/partition has been indexed before).
This brings me to the idea when typing this, that a copy of the orginal index now sits also on the backup drive. But why does spotlight starts to index it then?
Maybe diffult to desribe but you maybe get my point...

Thanks for a feedback
