PC100 SDRAM at 66MHz

I think I know the answer to this, but I have to ask just to be sure.
Can I use PC100 SDRAM in my BX motherboard using a PII 266MHz running at 66Mhz.  That way, when I upgrade to a PII 400Mhz and use the 100Mhz FB, I wouldn't have to change the memory.

Will it work?

There is no problem using the 100MHz SDRAM at 66MHz.  It's going the other way (i.e. trying to use 66MHz SDRAM in a 100MHz bus) that will cause problems.
