i had heard that too but didn't see it in Pina's book and i'm not into cutting things unless i know for sure. :)

the MB's are different. 2/5 has the Lisa Lite card and the 2/10 has the floppy controller on the I/O board. Just didn't know if there was a way to get the 2/10 board to work in a 2/5 (without the known mods - wiring harness, MB, etc.).
