Default RAM Question

I have a PC that only supports PC2100 DDR Ram of up to 2GB. I currently only have 256MB installed, and I want to buy an additional 1GB. Therefore, I have these questions:

1) Should I buy from the same company as my 256MB? Currently, it's Ultra, but I can't seem to find many of those from web sites. I usually see Kingston or Corsair on sale and never Ultra.

2) Should I only buy PC2100 RAM? I usually see PC2700 or PC3200 on sale for so much cheaper than if I were to buy a PC2100 stick. I know that it would only operate at PC2100 speeds. It would cost me less but I didn't know if it would end up messing up.

3) Would a 1GB stick work well with a 256MB? There's such a difference in the capacities I didn't know if it would end up frying on me.
