That would depend on the Revision of the 68LC040 you have.  There were
quite a few 68LC040 chips that were broken (i.e. wouldn't work properly
even with a software FPU).  I think you can test using something called
SoftFPU under MacOS or you could boot the Debian Linux root.bin and see
what happens.
