Default backwards compatible

to the best of my knowledge pc 3200 and pc 2700 ram is backwards compatible and i know it will run at the slower speed is there a specific way it needs to go in to a computer. the setup is my gfs hp it has two channels (fourslots) one channel contains two sticks of pc 2700 256 mb ram and the other channel is empty and i have two sticks of pc 3200 256 mb i am not using can i just put it in and it will work or do i have to split it like one 2700 and one 3200 per channel.i dont want ot risk damaging her comp(though i know the risk is nearly non existent ) but i would like to know if there is a proper way to do this and if in fact it is compatible

It should work fine. You should just put in the sticks in alteration. 32, 27, 32, etc.

My current setup is like so:
