Thanks huggyg71. Ok so go for SDRAM, getting a bit confused though, first off is it best to go for 1 256mb or 2 128mb ? Second PC100, PC133, PC? how do i know what to buy ? every where i look belarc, everest, crucial, intel, etc does not tell me. please help.

Thankyou..

Yes... think so. Actually i downloaded this earlier today but now you have said it as well i read it properly this time !!! Thankyou.
So this meens i can get PC66 ? and no higher, ? Yes ? One day hopefully i will know a little more and won't have to ask all these silly dumb questions. Thankyou..

Looking at the manual it appears that your motherboard doesn't need anything faster than PC66 although PC100 is backward compatible so would work okay. You wouldn't get any speed benefit though as it would only run at the BUS speed of 66MHz. It's just that PC100 may be easier to find and cheaper. It also appears that each DIMM slot will only support 128MB of memory so buy two 128MB DIMMs as it's almost certain that a single 256MB stick won't be recognised.

You are an absolute star !!!
I will now go off and look on Ebay to see what i can find.

Thankyou..
