New owner needs help

Hello everyone. I recently lucked into a Lisa. It appears to be a original Lisa 1 converted by Sun Remarketing into a Macintosh XL, since it has a parallel port on the back, but a 3.5" floppy drive of some sort in the front. It also has an internal 20MB HD, whose interface appears to connect to said parallel port. When I first got it, it actually managed to boot into MacWorks Plus 1.x.x, and then into System 6.0.2. Unfortunately, since then, the internal HD refuses to spin up anymore. I might have a source for a replacement hard drive of the same type (3.5" MFM), but I'm unsure as of yet where I'd get software for this thing, or how I'd go about formatting the replacement hard drive to be readable/bootable by the Lisa. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. -Adam
