Default Memory ??

Ok, my system supports 2gb PC2100 DDR SDRam. I installed 1gb and powered up the system and all I got was short beeps, nothing else. I tried switching slots same thing. Bad memory??

System does run with the factory ram, and I'm in the process of getting a different 1gb stick. I did the count the beeps... just a steady beeping, I guess long beeps couple seconds apart.
