1-2-3 was copy protected, yes. iirc, they put an intentional
bad-in-a-certain-pattern sector on the disk. Total pain in the ass for
a university computer lab. And they never did understand why people
ditched them for the competition as soon as there was viable competition...
That said, we have a 5.25" floppy we could probably spare.
