Yes, but it would basically underclock the chip, as the cpu uses a FSB of 166 (333DDR), while the rame runs @ 133 (266DDR). If you have the ability to run the FSB and ram asynch in the bios you can try, but a lot of times that can cause instability. Best bet - get some PC2700 or faster.

Botton line:
Memory:
PC3200 = DDR400 memory is required when setting the FSB clock to 200. 400 Bus.
PC2700 = DDR333 memory is required when setting the FSB clock to 166. 333 Bus.
PC2100 = DDR266 memory is required when setting the FSB clock to 133. 266 Bus.
PC1600 = DDR200 memory is required when setting the FSB clock to 100. 200 Bus.
