No you didn't mate. Most IIe programs run OK on the GS.
But you'll need a 5.25" floppy drive 'daisy-chained'
into the back of your 3.5" drive.

Even if the 3.5" drive is empty, the GS will auto-detect
that there's a floppy in the 5.25" and start up that disk.

BTW. ALWAYS turn the Apple CPU *OFF* before plugging/unplugging
floppy drives. Many a 5.25" floppy circuit board has been fried
by plugging/unplugging power surges.
