Regardless of whether FP was onboard or not at the time, there was an
extremely funky FP daughterboard available for the 4/2xx. IIRC, it's on
this horrible tower built up of socket extenders. Unfortunately, the one I
have is buried in storage, so I can't just go check.

Yes, I'm still here. :)

PS: Stay tuned, I'm hoping to have a 2/120 available before the end of June.
