Yes, but it'll run very slow. Quake hardly depends on FPU performance
(and the 486 FPU sucks compared to a Pentium, read _real_ Pentium, not
5x86 or something like that).

Also, the cirrus logic is not very fast, so you'll have to run it under
very low resolution (320x200 imho).

No, it will run both on 2.0.x and 2.1.x (actually, it runs better on
2.0.x, because there are some sound problems with 2.1.x).
