PC100 RAM question

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I own a PowerMac G4 500 "Sawtooth" (AGP). I currently have 256 MBs. I need to max my memory. The Apple System Profiler states that my PowerMac has four PC100 3.3V 168-pin SDRAM slots available. MacTracker states that my Mac can max at 1.5 MBs under OS 9.2 and 2 MBs under OSX. My question is, how is this possible and does this mean I should purchase four 512k units? Also, what is an ECC registered memory? Is it any better than a non-registered or a non-ECC unit?
