The old 72 pin EDO simms are PC66 memory usually in 4 MB, 8 MB, 16MB, 32MB, and up to 128 Mb sticks. There is a breaking notch in the middle of the pins ( where it connects to the motherboard).
Soon after came the 168 pin PC66, PC100, and PC133 memory that had 2 notches in the pins and usually came in 32, 64, 128 MB sticks. There are some 256 & 512 sticks but they are hard to find.
Then there was the 184 pin DDR266, DDR333, and DDR400 memory which went back to the single notch in the pins.
There were so many varations on these memorys the easist method to find out what they are is to stick them in a computer they will fit and see what it says. You really cannot say the amount of memory on the stick by them being single sided or double sided. That usually has to do with the density of the memory. On most of the computers low density worked better than high density.

The other thing that might happen is the comyter won't boot or crashes soon after booting. This tells you the memory stick is probably bad. Again Everest has a memory test you can do to check the memory to see if its good.
