Was just re-reading your post again and you mentioned thinking about changing the fpu chip to a 40mhz varient, but I don't think you mention whether you did or not. Did you?
For the life of me I could not remember. I actually got my TT all back together again at the end of last year.
Its a bit packed in Gigafile, SD-IDE connected to Thunder board, USB poking out the back connected to Lightning board, 10MB ST-RAM board and Mach64 VGA card at the back.
Just tried to take a look and the FPU is tucked away under the VME board but I managed to get my phone under enough to take a pic and it is the 40MHz variant.

Ah thanks for going to all the trouble of checking
I am guessing that an overclocked FPU might help speed up some tasks in Netbsd since an FPU is required for that OS, I wonder what software use it or whether they just require an FPU as the base requirements for all possible types of calculations.
