The IWILL KK266 board is based on the VIA KT133A chipset and does NOT support DDR memory.

The KA266 does support DDR memory and is based on the ALi Magik chipset.

If I were buying DDR memory at this point, I would just get the PC1600 from Crucial/Micron. It is really inexpensive and Crucial is known for their high quality and stable RAM (113.00 for 256 megs of PC1600 DDR the last time I checked) while I have seen PC2100 from Mushkin for $395. That is just terrible price:performane ratio imho. If you can wait I would just wait until micron releases their PC2100 because I'm sure that it will be quite a bit cheaper than others.

This is a quote from the Iwill site on the KK266
"Bus Frequency
Supports DDR 266/200 MHz FSB
MicroStepping Iwill CPU Frequency Setting
Bye-Bye Jumper Iwill Smart Setting (Software CPU Frequency Setting) "

I don't know what that means but if the board does not support DDR that is a bit misleading.
