Well, I tried it on my IIsi, and it doesn't work.  Here are the messages I got:

Now, it's certainly possible that I did something else wrong; I tried it
with the screen depth set both to 8-bit and 1-bit; I disabled "Auto-size
RAM" and set it to 1MB less than I have (17Mb); I do have an FPU installed.
Anything else I should be looking at?
