Only a certain "white" PLA will allow the original 8088 co-processor from the Commodore labs to work, and only on the high-profile B's. I have only tried on these systems. You can't fit the co-processor into a low-profile system anyway, too big. I am guessing that we're not talking about the same co-processor card.
