Adding more memory
You can give your PC more memory by adding or
replacing memory modules called "DIMMs".
The motherboard's three DIMM sockets accept
DIMMs of up to 128 Mbytes in any combination
(giving a maximum memory capacity of 384 Mbytes).
The slot nearest to the processor is recommended to
be used first.
This is a DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module).

The DIMMs you use must have the following
specification: gold contacts, 3.3V, 64 or 72-bit,
unbuffered, SDRAM-type with Serial Presence Detect
(SPD) and a CAS latency of 2 at 66 MHz. If you use
any other type of DIMM you risk damaging the
The ECC capabilities of 72-bit DIMMs will only
operate if all the DIMMs in the system are 72-bit.
