The DS5000/2xx use MS02-AA (8MB) and MS02-CA (32MB). These are relatively
large boards with a large connector on the bottom.
The DS3100/2100 uses MS01-AA (2MB each in pairs of 2). The DS5000/xx and
DS5000/1xx can also use MS01-AA but that will limit your maximum memory to
32MB. Using MS01-CA (8MB each in pairs of 2) you can go up 128MB.
