Obviously, it's a 68040/25MHz.  A Full '040.  The EC040's (XC or MC68EC040)
had a disabled or nonexistant MMU, and the LC040's (XC of MC68LC040) had 
a disabled or nonexistant FPU (Floating Point Unit... Aka the Math 
Coprocessor).  The rest of the information below refers to where and when 
it was built, the temps. it should run at, etc.
