You have 2 slots. Each slot can handle 512MB giving you a maximum of 1024MB total. this is all your computer can accept and handle.

That's good news but does it make any difference that the previous memory (256 mb) was PC2100 133mhz and the new memory (512 mb) is PC3200 200 mhz ?

Thanks for the help so far .......

Without having prior experience with that particular board, the site is stating only 4406 memory, which does not give me a clue if its PC2100 or PC3200. If the board supports both types it will not matter which you install.
