" From: "Geoffrey S. Mendelson" <gsm at mendelson.com>
" 256 meg DIMMs were pretty rare, especialy in PC100. PC133 was easier to
" find, but I understand that some computers that take PC100 can use it and 
" some can not. There is also the problem that many motherboards 
" can only address 128m per chip, so you need special 2x128m DIMMs.

that's it afaik.  for pc100 compatibility you need 'low density' [eg.
128m chips or smaller] pc133 sticks.  iirc 256m or 512m will show as
128 if they work at all.
