upgrading issues p166/ram

well i recentely picked up an old 1500 and i have some questions:
1. i have no clue as to what kind of ram is in that thing (i know EDO, but parity, ECC?) i also have no clue as to what won't be compatable with it because i have some unknown sticks of EDO lying around

2. pricessor upgrade: i don'thave 2 of ny kind of proc, but i do have an old 166 to replace the 133. i took the original proc out of the non-ZIF socket (the one with no little lever thing) and slapped in the 166. my question is: isthere anything that i ned to change likejumpers or DIPs?? there are some dip switches on the proc board.

PS i have no original documentation :P

You can find all the documentation you will need on the compaq support website, including exploded diagrams, part numbers, memory compatibility charts, etc.
