Default RAM help wierd $#!@

in this pc i have 2 (MEM RIMM 128-mb PC800 32MX2 RO) ram sets. I have no clue what kind to buy to upgrade it. The motherboard can read up to 2gb of ram and thats how much i want in it. Thus i need 2 1gb sticks but the current ram has wierd slots with two notches insted of the one notch im used to. Basicly i need help on figuring out what ram i need to buy.
