Mma problem on PowerMac

I just got a new PowerMac (Performa 5200) and tried to install my 68k Mathematica
(version 2.2) running in emulation mode. Initially it complained that no FPU is 
present. That's okay, it doesn't know about the powerpc FPU and therefore I installed 
SoftFPU 3.0. Now I can start the front end and also the kernel comes up a little bit
(the meter shows up) but then dies :-((

Now the big question: 
Is there no way to run my 68k Mathematica on a PowerMac ????   Or what am I doing 
wrong ??

Many thanks in advance
