Apple Lisa Owners??

Which Lisa model do you have? I have a Lisa 2/10 that is almost
working. The hard drive install of Sun's version of MacWorks is
apparently corrupt and it doesn't boot completely (or needs a boot
floppy that I don't have). I'm loathe to fix the MacWorks install
because I'd rather run the Lisa Office System.

Problem is, the Lisa Office System is serialized, and, once installed,
it will only reinstall on the same Lisa. There are some outfits around
that will sell copies of the uninstalled disks for $170, which is a bit
steep. I have an acquaintance at a local computer recycler who has a
set and is willing to let me borrow them, but I'll have to set up a PC
with two 720K drives (which I don't have handy) and a Copy II Option
Board (which I do have) to dupe them.
