Yep, it will see it and as far as using it, that will depend on what app you run.
I have a single 256MB stick of Mushkin PC133 SDRAM.

ok so y when i boot up with 128mb my system resources ar the same as when i add another 64mb????

same stuff running i checked it after boot was done..it is reading it but i thought i should have more resources avail.

someone told me that it only uses 64mb amd then goes to virtual mem...

That's strange. Are you saying that it sees all 128 when you're in Win98, but when you first boot it only sees 64?

I don’t know how I got here… I was only looking for the washroom.

On my system the more I add the more windows uses. Started with 64 and would have 4-8meg unused, went to 128 and would have 25-40meg unused, now I have 256 and there is 132meg unused. I doubt the swap file is ever used and that is a big plus. I think it uses what it needs and is less prone to give it back if there is unused ram.

Hardware911 - System resources are an entirely different thing than system memory. Adding more memory generally will not improve system resources. See this link about system resources: http://www.hardwarecentral.com/hardwarecentral/tutorials/83/1/
Adding more memory will improve your free system memory for running apps and so forth, but resources are more than memory.
Maybe I misunderstood, but I hope this helps!
