I have a PIII system that has 1 - 256MB PC100  Simm in it.   I took some memory out of an my celeron computer that I am not using.  When I put in the 3 32MB PC100 simms in my PIII, the computer on post said,

"Error - Double-side Memory" simm 2
"Error - Double-side Memory" simm 3
"Error - Double-side Memory" simm 4

What is double-side memory and is there a way to make this memory work with my other memory that is in my computer?

Please help...
