I take the first MP-F51W-03 I found on my desk, hoping it is working. I don't know if it's a 1,44 or 800k drive ;)

I may dismantle a Mac Plus later to get it's drive, may fit better in the lisa drive cage.

Please confirm that I only have to cut the track that go from PIN 9 under cap C2 (*not* remove C2 !), and remove the RJ5 resistor ?

I don't want to kill my Lisa board, killink the drive itself is not a problem...

Thanks, anyway ! I never heard about this on the net before !
