The individual patch you need is called "Centris-without-FPU" and requires
resedit to install.  However, you should consider upgrading to 2.0.1, which
includes this and many other fixes.  Both the Centris-without-FPU patch
and the upgrade to 2.0.1 are available from ftp.cambridge.apple.com, under
/pub/MCL2/patches/.  You'll either have to do the upgrade on another machine
besides the Quadra 610 or install the Centris-without-FPU patch before doing
the upgrade.

(Note, you can also upgrade to 2.0.1 from APDA, in which case for your $25
you'll get the entire new CD-ROM, with updated contributed code, etc.)
