Good job!

So you were successful at getting
the Lisa to boot from a Zip drive!

Then is sounds like it is possible to
take a Lisa without a widget or ProFile hard drive and run it with just a floppy, a Sun Rem SCSI card, and a SCSI Zip drive.

It appears that once the Zip
disc is configured correctly, you don't even need a floppy drive!

I'm not even going to pursue LocalTalk
or Ethernet since with essentially a
100MB 'floppy' (the Zip disk) I'll
have no problem transferring files
between my modern system and the

Thanks for figuring out how to
make a Zip disk the boot disk
for a Lisa. I'm not sure, but this
may be a first! Your work will certainly prove very useful for me - until
now I didn't have any way to transfer
files to or from the Lisa!
