Default How do I install 512mb on my computer

Ok I am about to buy 512mb for my computer. How do I install it and how do I suppose to know where to put it. Can someone post me some steps to show me how to install it because I dont want to make a mistake and touch the motherboard. Also can someone please post me a diagram or a picture of the inside of a computer so I can see what the memory looks like so I can take it out and put my new one in. Thanks

when you purchase a stick you'll get a better idea I found a thing off of google that shows you how to do when you open your case look for the other stick(s)
and thats the slot you'll be using

go to crucial's website (crucial.com), and just enter what kind of computer you have, and it will tell you the type of RAM you need for it. Then find it at newegg.com,,,,,cheap and fast shipping.

They are all different types and specific to certain hardware, please go to www.crucial.com to find out what type your computer supports

Since your's is a pentium III I'm guessing it's gonna take PC133 SDRAM
