Memory limits

I just want to make sure my numbers are right here.

Win 98 can only recognize/handle 256mg ram correct?
How much does WinME handle or is it still 256mg?

I want to up my box to 512 but I don't really want to go to Me because I have used it and prefer Win 98 SE.

TIA

I believe even Win95 can handle up to 2 gig of RAM.  You can go to 512 on Win98.

More than 256 is probaly overkill but why not get in while it is cheap ?

Microsoft caims it can recognize 2gig, but I never see a performance increase after 128 (except the ability to have more apps)
I know there's a link somewhere at Microsoft's site.

So basically anything over 512 is recognized to exist but won't be used.

It seems that as soon as you put more in than 512 MB you'll start hitting problems...

And since you'll most likely never need more than that (in the next few years at least) it would be better to set that as your limit...
