The UM480 variants all seem to lock up with my GA-486VM. The variant I settled on earlier in the thread comes the closest to working completely -- it detects the CPU fine, detects the proper amount of RAM and L2, and then locks up before I can even get into setup. I'm assuming it has something to do with how my DX4 OverDrive behaves -- apparently it "helpfully" disables L2 on machines it deems not fully compatible. Whether that means it just doesn't like having 16K L1, or something else is at play, I don't know. However, I'm honestly willing to just let sleeping dogs lie at this point and use my original AMIBIOS with no L2, since in my testing with my DX2-66 having L2 enabled dramatically increased my RAM access times to the point that with it enabled, the numbers were higher in benchmarks, but with it disabled the machine felt faster and was more consistent. I got more out of setting my RAM to 0WS than I ever did from having L2 anyway.
