I have a Compaq Presario 9642, originally with 16 MB RAM (8 MB System Board, Two slots with 4 MB RAM each)
So, I decided to upgrade it to 48 MB.  I bought two more 16 MB SIMMS (you need to install in pairs).  Should I put the new SIMMS on the bottom two slots, or the top two slots, or does it matter?
All four are regular, 60ns, 72-pin, fast-page SIMMS.

It doesn't matter as long as all ram is the same speed and you install ram in pairs.
