Wrong Memory?

What exactly happens when you try to install the wrong type of RAM? I just bought some from an online retailer and even though he says that it fits a pc100, it only says pc133 on it. Will it blow up my computer or motherboard or anything?

what's your other ram on your pc? you shouldn't mix different kinds (ie dont mix w/ pc100 w/ pc133). If you are just using the pc133 by itself, it'll be fine.
