    I want to get an extra 1gb RAM for my pbook.

    I went to the crucial site, and they have two options for the powerbook
    DDR and DDR2, what is the difference?
    And how do I tell which kind I need?

    Find out what is already in your computer in system profile

    Yes - if you're sig is correct and you've got a 1.67 64MB VRAM, that means you've got a Rev D or earlier so you're using DDR RAM and not DDR2. Check System profiler to be sure though.
