Default ram buying help please

this is the specs from the sony support site for my comp:

When purchasing memory to install into the computer, select SDRAM meeting the following specifications and guidelines:

* Double Data Rate-Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (DDR-SDRAM)
* PC-2100
* 266MHz
__________________________________________________ ________________

SoDimm Ram is used for laptops so that willn't work. And if it says you can have a total of 512 then you will need to buy 2 256mb
This memory will work though
-Crucial 256MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 266
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145001
Just buy two of those and you will be set

actually i meant that i currently have 512 (2 256's) in my laptop... so any ram that says sodimm will work as long as its:
Double Data Rate-Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (DDR-SDRAM)
* PC-2100
* 266MHz
?
