I am planing to upgrade the RAM memory on my PC from 16 MB to 32 MB. I need a pair of 4MBx32 EDO. I have one 4MBx32 EDO  made by PNY and another one made by Kinsley. I was wondering if I can use these two as a pair or I have to use two modules made by a single manufacture.

Straight answer : you can buy any 2 , like, 72 pin, edo SIMMS and it will work.

if your motherboard has an INTEL chipset, and it is a pentium, then it has a 32 bit memory bus and accesses the 72 pin SIMMS 2 at a time. I wouldn't count on a mismatched pair working (although it can), but 2 different pairs can and will work just fine. Some motherboards (chipsets) have problems when mixing EDO and non-EDO ram, but since you already have EDO ram, this shouldn't be a problem.
 
Let me know if you need anything else

jlove1,
Based on the information that was provided in the question, how in the world do you infer that bd2000 has an Intel chipset?  Or a Pentium?
Wouldn't it be simpler to gather the info necessary to make an informed answer than to spend time needlessly guessing at one?

Glad you got it going even though the "answer" you accepted didn't help.
