Subject: Remote hardware identification

Hi All,

I have a remote server which I inherited which I have no real
specifications for except the basic dmesg output.  This machine needs
more RAM and rather than buying 5 sticks of varying types for the job,
is there some way to identify the type of ram needed?  All I know is
that it's a P4 class machine with DDR ram, I'm just not sure of the
speed.  Or is it possible to mix'n'match the ram speeds?

Thinks in advance

Dear Tim,

I would get a brand name DDR400 PC3200 since its backward compatible with
lower speeds (PC2100 PC2700), unless it's more highend server motherboard
with ECC or Registered memory...
