Hello and welcome to techimo!
Is this your board?
If so, it supports up to 3gb of SD memory.
As per their site;
"Memory -Three 168-pin DIMM sockets for 3.3V SDRAM (PC133/PC100)
- Maximum: 3GB"
So it appears to support strictly SDRAM
Amazon.com: pc133 sdram 512
Though personally I wouldn't drop more than 1gb in a system like that..
I can't foresee anything you are doing justifying more than 1gb of that slow of memory (to be honest I didn't even know they still sold it ).
This site will show you the differences between DDR and SDRAM.
