Thanks for the impressive recommendation.
I checked the site and I was surprised that for two of my machines,
one a 2645-55U which is a 300MHz 6.4GB DVD systems and the other a
2645-5BU which is a 400MHz 10GB DVD system, Micron recommended
differently numbered parts although the prices were the same.
Is this necessary?
Do these numbers represent different components or just different
Wouldn't the part for the fastest machine be okay on the other 600e's?

How much does one really need? Win98 and its applications are so
leaky that one needs to reboot pretty frequently anyway. Maybe if
Win2K allows one to keep applications running for days or weeks at a
time, then even more memory will be useful.
