    The beige G3 desktops must use low profile memory, due to space contrictions inside the case. You can find it in 256MB modules. As far as the nature of the memory, use NON-ECC ONLY, SDRAM (PC66 or PC100 will work, and even PC133 if you can find it in the low profile/height).

    You don't want to purchase, install, and then hear a sickening CRUNCH when you close the computer up from the memory being too tall (the crunch being either the memory or motherboard being broken).
