I was wondering whether slotting RAMS in different slots will have any changes?? Like if I have 3 RAM slots, any difference if i use slot 1 & slot 3?? or slot 1 & slot 2?? or slot 2 & slot 3??

I currently have 2 Kingston PC133 256 MB rams.

Certainly can make a huge difference.

Seems to be that a single stick is best, but if you must use two, experiment with them in the different slots, benchmarking and testing each time. That way, you will establish the best for your setup.

I used to run a KR7A-Raid board by Abit, and the differences were HUGE. Some mixes would not even boot, but others were fine.

Hope that helps.
