Ah, if it were only that simple. If my problems are floating point
related, and emulator isn't helping, there's nothing I can do then.
My motherboard has a permanent AMD 386-40 cpu with an empty 486 socket
next to it (labeled as such). There is no 387 socket.
No manual for the mboard means it goes unused. Tried it, failed each time.

And before the obligatory "why don't you just pick up a 486 motherboard
or something, they're cheap enough" comment. Money I don't have, bills
I do. If an mboard w/cpu was $20 I couldn't. 

One of these days.
