That depends entirely on which one you're talking about.
Try looking it up on Crucial's website.

Which iMac is it? Specifically.

That RAM is not supposed to be user serviceable, it's supposed to be serviced only be a Certified Apple Tech.

its a 700Mhz FP G4 iMac...so its well out of warranty, i have split the mac open a few times to replace the DVD drive, so its easily accesible

You need a 168 pin pc 133 ram for the apple serviced slot (internal slot)
for the user ram slot its a 144 pin pc133 ram ..Max ram is 1 GB installable

so only a 512Mb module can be installed internally (Apple Only Slot)The internal slot is a PC133 SDRAM DIMM slot that can accept up to 512 MB of RAM. The external user accessible slot is PC133 SDRAM as well but takes a SO-DIMM with a 512 MB maximum.
