    Kewl! Did ya get it working? Doesn't it boot from the hard drive? (The 2/5 should have an internal (5Mb) drive). I'm not sure, but some of the disks I sent might be bootable (I wouldn't bet on it tho).

    As far as i know, the Lisa 2 came with no HD, the Lisa 2/5 came with an external Profile HD and the Lisa 2/10 came with an internal 10mb HD.

    Terry, I haven't gotten your disks yet, so this is sorta an "in advance thing"

    I have heard that you can only run some Lisa OS's with a Profile drive is this true? If so with what versions does it apply?

    Thanks
