For this amount of RAM, the operating system should not be an issue. You may have a compatibility problem w/ the RAM you are attempting to use.
Below is some info. I gathered on your system and its memory requirements. Hopefully, this will help.
Whenever you're looking for memory for a computer, a good search to use in your favorite search engine is "memory configurator". A number of manufacturer's have a place on their web site where you can plug in info on your computer and find out what RAM it supports, etc.
Your system can support up to 288MB of RAM. 32MB is fixed (built in).
That leaves you w/ a maximum of 128MB per bank (slot in this case) for a total of 256MB max added.
Your system does not require ECC nor dual channel memory. Nor do the DIMMs need to be installed in matching pairs.
Your system takes SDRAM. PC133 will be fine. In fact, you'd have a difficult time finding PC100 these days (and it'd be a lot more expensive (because it is essentially obsolete technology).
Please, go HERE for IBM/Lenova's listing of memory options for your laptop.
Please, let us know if this response was helpful for
you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.
