Default Combining RAM

I have 2 computers sittin around, wanna put Kingston and Samsung, (both 128 MB) in 1, and a 64 MB Siemens and one that says "Replace with Compaq spare Memory DIMM 64 MB" ( I assume it's 64MB) in the other. Are these paired up brands compatibe? The 128 MB set is going into a compaq, the 64 MB set is going into a gateway. I think both operating systems are 98 SE, I know 1 is for sure.

If you put it in the motherboard, and it's not compatable, it's not going to explode or make your mother pregnant or anything, so don't worry. Just try it. And if the computer fails to POST, take it out, try another stick.
