I had a Copy II board for my PC, which would copy almost anything. I gave
it away when I left the 'states because it had been years since I had
seen a copy protected disk and no longer had a computer it would run on.

In retrospect, since that computer had 5 1/4 and 3.5" floppy drives, a 60 meg
QIC tape drive (that would read 10 and 30 meg tapes), the copy II board, an 
EPROM burner and some other interesing things, I should have kept it.

I had no idea that 12 years later I would actually miss the darn thing. :-)

Back to Lotus, I seem to remember that with the CopyII PC package was a 
program which bypassed the copy protection for some programs. I don't remember
the name of it, or if it worked with Lotus.
