    DDR and DDR2 RAMs

    Hi, I have a pc with a 2000 Mhz AMD Athlon CPU, Shuttle AK 39 MainBoard and 256 MB of RAM. In the Mainboard manual, it says that the MB can support DDR RAMs. Now I want to add a 1GB DDR2 RAM to my PC. What will happen assuming that the MB does not support DDR2 RAMs?
    If I update the MB's BIOS then is it possible to support DDR2 RAMs?
    Thanks in advance.
    This will be over soon, and then I can ...

    Unfortunately, no amount of software updates (to include BIOS) will help that because DDR2 chips are a different physical size and need a different memory controller. Sorry.
    63,000 bugs in the code, 63,000 bugs,
    ya get 1 whacked with a service pack,
    now there's 63,005 bugs in the code!!
