After two hours of research on the subject, my answer is: Yes.
Personally I would not reccomend memory any slower than 2.5-3-3-7. Since your system is an Athlon XP 3000+ (right?) you will be running at 166Mhz (well, DDR bus is theoretically 333Mhz since it is Double Data Rate... both rising and falling edge of the clock). Next step: we need to see what types of memory your motherboard supports and how many slots.
Well, looking around, it appears to support PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200. Someone correct me if I am wrong, here is the way that I see it. If this memory has timimg of 3-3-3 ("tras" or cycle time unknown, let'* assume no worse than 7 since Samsung is reputable), then you should be able to run 2.5-3-3-6 or so @ 166 Mhz. Fast enough in my book.
