You do install extra RAM, but you do NOT install additional RAM ICs.
All you do is replace two chips with two other chips.

You could replace the 2100's RAM chips with those of a 2000, that
would make it a 2000. But that wouldn't make that much sense I think.
Of course, if you insist, it'd be easier for you if I trade you a
2000 board for your 2100 board ;-)
