Another question about adding memory: A chart on the inside of the computer shows how to configure the memory in the slots (i.e. for 128Mb, 32 in slot 0, 64 in slot 1, and 32 in slot 2.) The only problem is that slot 2 does not have a bank to accept the memory. Can I install a missing bank(??) and install 128Mb, or am I limited to 96 (a 32 and a 64). Or could I just put 128 in one of the slots and kiss it? Thanks

You are saying there is no 3rd DIMM slot? If there are only 2 slots you physically cannot add another one.

Well, if there are two slots (or three?) then it usually won't let you put the max in just one slot. A lot of the time the max per slot is divided up from the total max supported, so with 2 slots it is 64 max per slot with 128mb total. However that is a wierd configuration they want but I don't know why they would say there is a slot 2 unless it is for a different version of that model mother board. In that case just ignore me and try using one 128mb like slipe said, and if that doesn't work then try using a 64 in each.
