Answers :

Only if the new memory matches up with the old memory. Do yourself a favor if you want to upgrade the memory check pcconnection.com,ebay.com or some other web site and buy 2GB of memory that match and will fit your machine. You will be happier and you machine won't crash.
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.

So, yes, this is true.
