I have a 566 MHz Celeron m/b with a single 64 MB PC100 RAM stick, and
I'm thinking about upping the RAM. Can I use PC133 sticks?

Yes, as long as your mobo isn't based on the Intel 810 chipset which is
fussy about RAM sometimes, and as long as you buy memory sticks that have 8
chips per 128MB.

So a 128MB stick needs to have 8 chips on one side, a 256MB needs to have 16
chips, 8 on each side. Modern PC133 has 1/2 the number of chips and won't
work on your board.

You'd probably be better off with all PC133 if you can afford it and
your MB can take advantage of the higher speed.
