will RAM from PISMO work in a LOMBARD?

in General Discussion edited January 2014

i have a powerbook g3/500 that has 128mb stock ram and an additional 128 chip i picked up when i got it so i would have 256mb of ram total. i just upgraded the ram to a full gig. i was wondering if the original ram that came stock will work in a Lombard or any of the older powerbooks? will it work on any othe macs for that matter?

    EDIT: I read your post wrong:

    I think it may work....but the bus speeds are different and so are the motherboards in general. Not really sure....I don't see why PC100 RAM wouldn't work at a lower speed, but who knows. Also, with the Pismo you have double the reccomended RAM. That could or could not be a problem, as technically it is unsupported.

    Anyone else?

    As far as I know, the RAM from a pismo will work in a lombard. The RAM will work fine at a lower speed.
