Lorentzian on a baseline

I'm trying to fit a Lorentzian subtracted from a constant baseline,
using findfit.

 FindFit[rawdata, m1 - m2/((x - m3)^2 + m2^2), {m1, m2, {m3, 250}}, x,
  MaxIterations -> 10000]

Isn't working - either a totally flat horizantal line, or the
subtracted 'Lorentzian' looks almost delta-function sharp. Help?

P.S. Does Experimental Data Analyst work with 6.0.1 (Mac)?
