Yes, the 68881 & 68882 are pin-compatible so it should be fine. Really the only difference between them is that the 68882 is a little faster.

The only thing to check is the clockspeed as 68881 maybe won't like running at 50Mhz...

Hello there and welcome to the forums, in case nobody has welcomed you yet

I can't say for sure but I think that CPU requires the 882 math co-processor and will not work with the older model like the 020 cpu's can.

I'm sure somebody more knowledgable about this will be able to confirm if this is indeed the case.
