Apple Mac XL/Lisa 2

Small update!

Lisa will power up with a different memory board in but won't boot from
either the widget or LisaOS/MacWorks bootdisks so more work is needed. Of
course, the boot disks I'm using could be toast so next step is to try them
in my other Lisa (or Fat Mac I suppose) to see if they're readable. Failing
that I can create new ones......

More as it happens, should anyone be interested.
