According to Crucial click here, the maximum you can install is 2G, but I doubt that you will see much improvement above 1G.

Yes your board will take up to 2GB as said by Gongoozler.

If you install a gig of ram,you will see a vast improvement over your current 256MB.

At the moment your current ram is working backward compatible.
Supported RAM Speed: PC2100, PC1600 for your board.

Some info here for you click here

Your welcome NRW

Though do use Crucial as advised by anskyber,they guarantee there ram or money back.

So many outlets that sell ram but this may turn out to be non-compatible with your board.

Merry Christmas to you also NRW1
