no, but look at these constraints on the memory vs cpu FSB speeds
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=K7S8XE

*CPU* 	- Socket 462, supporting AMD Athlon, Athlon XP, Duron
- FSB 400/333/266/200 MHz
*Chipset* 	- SiS^® 748
*Memory* 	- DDR non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- DDR400, Max. capacity of system memory: 1GB (FSB 400/333 MHz)*
- DDR333, Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB (FSB 400/333/266/200 MHz)
- DDR266/200, Max. capacity of system memory: 3GB (FSB 333/266/200 MHz)

*According to SiS^® official document, SiS^® 748 chipset has limitation 
DDR supports:
CPU at FSB 200MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR400
CPU at FSB 333MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR200
CPU at FSB 400MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR200/DDR266



I don't know which CPU you have, but, for instance, if its a 400Mhz CPU, 
you can't use 200/266 memory, and if you're not using 200/266 memory, 
you can't have 3 dimms at all.   Your PC2100 is 266Mhz memory.

And let just toss out that I personally would scrap any motherboard 
containing SiS (or VIA) chipsets in a blink if it was giving me any 
trouble at all.
