No, it wouldn't work. Multiple lines that would be needed to operate it are not available on the 150-pin bus, and the FPU would be on the wrong side of the data bus drivers.

Once again, there's no application that makes sense on a 030 these days that would not work without an FPU. Don't try to push an FPU into a system that doesn't need one.
