    To answer the question regarding is it normal -- It is normal for many ROMs to run hot. Depends on the technology used to create the ROM. Parts with CMOS (low power cores) tend to run cooler. But based on the date of that machine - it is probably a bipolar ROM... these normally run hot.
    And, the ROMs that have more activity on them will run hotter than those with less activity.
