PC133 along with PC3200

I bought a new mother board. It came with 512MB of UTL30215 PC3200 DDR 400Mhz memory. My old mother board had a 512MBQ8 PC133U-333-542-Z memory stick.

Can I mix the two?

if the motherboard supports, yes.. but you don't want to do that.  mixing RAM leads compatibility or even slowing the system down...

Let me be clear - no motherboard I'm aware of supports using both DDR and PC133 SDRAM at the same time - some boards may have slots for both, but you can't use both at the same time.  These are two different types of memory with two different kinds of slots - you won't be able to use the old PC133 in the new DDR system unless the new DDR system also has PC133 slots (which today, is increasingly unlikely).

@leew, I did have a board that a client purchased about 3-4 years ago...it had 4 "Tritieary?" IDE interfaces so that you can put 8 IDE drives directly on the motherboard..and it had DDR & PC133 slots and you can have them both work...What would happen is that you get the extra RAM, but the speed is a fast as the slowest link.  go figure.

"bleeding edge useless technology"

I forgot the manufacturer (ching-chiang-ding-dong) some country where you eat noodles.

Leew, I see what you mean. I looked at my new mother board and the PC133 memory will not even fit into the slots.
