A lot of the time it's down to the motherboard and what IT will
accept. Any motherboard with a pc100 bus speed will accept mixed pairs but
run everything at 100 Mhz. The same is true of the 66 bus speed. The 133 Mhz
systems however wont run the pc100 chips correctly 'cos they can't keep up
with the system bus ...
So if your mixing the two then you should run it at pc100, thereby
limiting the speed of the 133 to 100Mhz ... (as is my understanding)

Are you sure about that? In my experience, the RAM will run at whatever
speed the BIOS tells it to, regardless of what speed it says on the tin.
