I have heard that there was a port of GEMDOS to the Lisa (GEMDOS is better known as the base for Atari TOS). I think that's probably what your Lisa is running. You should try to image the hard drive (and install floppies if you have them) if at all possible, since there are no images currently available (you probably have one of the last surviving copies).
