Re: try to install Ubuntu 12.04
This is possible and I've done it on older machines. There are four slots on the MOBO. So long as you make sure RAM is same specs, you can populate one pair of slots with 1GB modules and the second slot pairing with 2GB modules, thus 6GB. You must make sure to match each different RAM pairing to their matching slots, but provided this is done and RAM is same speed and timing, the system runs well and OS works reliably.
