Oops! My mistake, Sorry.

It's a Compaq Presario 2203 Laptop based on Intel Centrino Technology.
It contains an Intel 855GM chipset motherboard which can support upto
2GB of RAM.
At present it's containing 256 Mb of RAM that was shipped default.
The make of the RAM is:
Speed: 266Mhz
Type: DDR.

Now, My questions,
Can I add another 512Mb of RAM making it a total of 768Mb (512 + 256). ??
And I want to add the RAM from some other vendor, may be Kingston or
Samsung, it'll

be cheap then.
Can I do that If I match the speed and type of the RAM ??

I know you might say how this question is related to Debian:
Will that combination (Two different capacity RAM from different
vendors) create any

conflict/panic in Debian and in Linux in particular ???
