Hmm. What FPU does the IIcx have on-board? I have been wondering whether
pulling the '882 off my PowerCache would do anything useful- perhaps if I
re-installed it on the motherboard, where there's an '881 now, or leave the
'881 on the motherboard, or even switch the two, might do something useful.
I'll do some experiments and folow up when I have some time.
