Carelessly I dropped in some more memory while the machine was 'soft' off,
rather than switched off at the mains...

Am I likely to have caused any damage?

Maybe "YES" and maybe "NO." Reboot the computer and see if you get any
errors.

Seems fine - First boot windows froze at the splash screen - but behaved
flawlessly since. also ran docmem to make sure...

Only recently got this ATX machine - an XP2600, nothing fancy but a major
leap up from the K62-500 I've been using for 4 years.

I think only certain parts are powered when 'off' like PCI slots, CMOS etc?
Obviously I'll make sure that wall switch is OFF in future....
