Great !
The info about Mac Binary II helped me. Ive found Mac Binary II on my Mac IIci and used it to create real DART files.
And now I succeded to convert them to DC42 files, write them on a disk and started my Lisa with it.

Now, the next problem happens ...
Using Xenix on my XProFile Ive to patch the boot disk with FEdit. The only version Ive found Stuffit reports some warnings and the extracted file doesnt work on my IIci.
FEdit is shareware. So do you know a goot place to download it ?
