I'm wondering whether It'd be feasible to swap in a PC133 stick from a T23. Could anyone please tell me whether that'd work?
Also would a 512 MB PC133 module work in just one slot, leaving the other empty?
For the time being, I've ordered another cheap PC100 one from Ebay, 128 MB this time, but fingers crossed it might work, as it's an IBM product...

I do know a 512mb in one slot won't work...
EDIT: Double checked...only the T23 can use the 133s...
EDIT2: There apparently SOME low density PC133s that would work. I'm done editing now that I have really even confused myself. Lol. I used to be able this question and any like it, without the slightest doubt.
The safer option for getting 256MB sticks working on a T22 is to go with the PC100 option. However as you know those things command a premium for being the highest capacity available for a generation of devices.
If you do decide to save up and get a PC133 SDRAM instead, make sure you get the 16 chip option. Here are two RAM sticks that I have. Both are PC133 and both work on a T23, but only ONE works on a T22. And no, using PC100 on a T23 won't even give a post so I know that 16 chip one is indeed a PC133 stick.

EDIT/UPDATE (19/12/19): Just acquired an IBM PC100 module (256 MB) for £4.99 (including postage), and it's working perfectly. I'd describe that as a result and a half!
