Just look in the motherbaord documentation.
There are many combinations, That the manufactor promises that they are ok to use.
(Even some combination that are not writen in the documentation may work).

I think that you can use them both.
Just try it. You can not distroy the SIMM/DIMM by that. The most that can happan is that it will not work.

I agree with Fuzzy.  On some I've seen you can use both, on others, however, one of the DIMM slots and the SIMM slots are mutually exclusive.  You won't damage anything but your memory won't all be used in that case.  Check your MB manual (if available) or see if you can find the MB manufacturer and check it's web site for information.  See www.sysopt.com for some assistance in locating/identifying MB makers.

One thing to keep in mind:
Even though it may be possible, as the others have said, you may not want to use SDRAM with slower FP or EDO SIMMS.
The SDRAM can be on the order of 5-6 or more times faster than the others.  If you mix them, RAM timings must then be set for the slowest memory in the system.

Buy SDRAM 100 Mhz because is faster and is only used in P II motherboard so if you like to upgrade to P II then you find that you got all parts you need. If you buy edo ram then you will be left with ram that no one wants
