Replying to my own request...
Found a manual for Copy II for the IIGS. I am now able to make a backup of Oregon Trail.

Subject: [midatlanticretro] Copying Oregon Trail for IIgs
OK, my ROM3 IIGS with 2 Meg of RAM is up and running with a CFFA (see http://tinyurl.com/3cmqb
> ) and a 128 meg compact flash card as the storage (4 32meg partitions).
Autoboots into OS 6 in no time.
I have 2 - 3.5" drives and and original copy of MECCs Oregon Trail for the iigs on a 3.5" disk. It boots and runs fine.
I'd like to copy the disk for safety, but every time I try to use copy ii or any other copy program I have, it doesn't work. In fact the computer usually locks up. In OS 6 or any of the earlier versions, the disk is not recognized.
I have seen lots of copies of it on 5.25" for download, but no where have I seen a 3.5" image.
So, does anyone know how to copy this disk?
