Unusual. Many motherboards of that era came with a warning in the
manual mot to mix SIMMs and DIMMs. Many people reported burnt-out DIMMs
if they did so.
Also on some boards, if you filled the SIMM slots you couldn't use one
of the DIMM slots, as the SIMMs and one DIMM slot occupied the same
space in the address map.

>slots totals to 640MB though - I make it 384MB!?!
<shrug> If the motherboard is one of those PC-Chips ones, the manual
often only bore a passing semblance to reality.
I'd suggest trying two 128Mb PC100 DIMMs, ignoring the SIMMs altogether
and testing thoroughly with Memtest86. 256Mb DIMMs are unlikely to work
