If it is a total systems adapter, he could try
Total Systems
  • Gemstart 2.1 (24 k)
  • Gemstart 3.0 (34 k)
  • This 1991 driver was made for the Total Systems Gemini accelerators for the Macintosh SE. It also works with Novy Quik30 accelerators, and fixes the distorted sound problem that otherwise accompanies the Novy boards. The proper way to install this Control Panel on System 7 is to place it in the Extensions folder (so it loads first), and make an alias of it in the Control Panels folder (so you can easily open it).

I cannot find it. I believe what you are looking for is the SwitchMatic control panel from Total Systems.
It may well work as a 68040 without any software, though - worth trying and seeing what TattleTech reports as the CPU when its plugged in.

Good call joshc, joethezombie mentioned having a copy in the old post, but I can't see any other mentions other than in old copies of MacWorld.

@joethezombie - do you have the files to share?

Yes, SwitchMatic is that software that for the card. I already tried the card without software, but TT does not recognize it, 68040 CPU get warm.
