Hmm I thought the memory module was a different shape and wouldn't fit
into the same slot (but I never had one to compare it to).

This module doesn't say Newertech or Microtech.  All that is on it is
WWEI 2MV 94V-0   970  And two chips named Mu1 and MU4.  It doesn't say
apple on it either other than on the  2 chips (and their part numbers).
 Is this a memory module or a ROM module?
