I think that you're unable to do that since PC 100 RAM is 100 Mhz RAM. You'll have to buy 66 Mhz RAM to install it on a 66 Mhz board.

I would say yes. PC 100 ram can work on 66mhz board as i'm using one right now. PC 100 and PC 133 ram can work at UP-TO 66 mhz up to 100 or 133mhz speed.

Zerquish is incorrect and misinformed!

There is NO PROBLEM putting PC100 SDRAM in a 66MHz bus system.  The problem is the other way around, i.e. putting 66MHz SDRAM in a 100MHz bus system.

The PC100 specifies the MAXIMUM speed at which the SDRAM is rated to run.  A system at 66MHz runs the SDRAM slower than this maximum and so there is no problem.

You accepted Zerquish's incorrect answer.  

My information is correct, his is wrong but in spite of that you chose to accept his answer.  I'll say that in my opinion, boom23 had the right answer first.

The only remedy is to post a request in the EE Help Desk area and ask them to fix this.
