I guess u do need a crystal, but try it anyway, perhaps it gets the timing from the a1200 motherboard... who knows... AFAIK you will not damage everything, but I am not 100% sure of that...
oh, the right crystal for this 68882 would be a 33mhz one....

The FPU is rated at 33MHz max, the A1200 doesn't run that fast.

So no, you don't break anything, just plug it in and enjoy the speed increase fast ram gives a stock A1200.
