Hey Graham,
Does your Powerbook user DDR1 or DDR2 ram? The ram mentioned in the 
thread you posted is DDR1 (model VS1GSDS400), not DDR2. If PBs use DDR1 
then I'm pretty sure that means it won't work. I know the pins are the 
same number, but I think the notch on the ram is different.

These specs seem to suggest it is DDR1:

Maybe check your model number (M9184LL/A ?) online and see if you can 
find the specs.

If you (or anyone else) wants to try them in an Apple laptop, then 
you'll need to get a copy of MemtestOSX (http://www.memtestosx.org/), 
which _used_ to be free (and I did have a copy of it somewhere), but now 
you have to pay a $1.39 fee to download it. If anyone has a copy maybe 
they could bring it along to CLUG?
