Help with RAM for Dell Inspiron 8100

I'm trying to sort out RAM upgrades for an Inspiron 8100.  I have a single
SODIMM (256 MB), and would like to add one, and find that I have some
confusion concerning what will fit.  The SODIMM in the machine now is an
Infineon, PC133, CL3, 32Mx64 DIMM.  I find that there are many kinds of chips
that appear to meet those specifications, but that they have widely differing
prices.  Here are 2 specific questions: (1) Do I need a 32Mx64 DIMM, or can I
also use a 16Mx16?  (2) I have seen SODIMMs with the FRU #19K4655, and some
claim compatibility with the Inspiron; does anyone have first-hand knowledge
of whether they will work in the Inspiron 8100?

I would appreciate answers to those 2 specific questions (or pointers to where
I can find answers), as well as any learned treatises on SODIMMs for laptops.

Thanks in advance.
