Bought Memory, did they ship wrong kind?

I posted before here about which kind of memory to buy and received great advice.

Now that I've received it from new egg and went to install it, I notice that it's significantly smaller (height wise) than the RAM that's already in my computer. Here's a pic of the new stuff.

Is the height going to be a problem? I've installed new RAM before, but it's always looked exactly the same.

Thanks everyone!

If the type is correct PC 4200 DDR2 533 MHz then the height does not matter!

Thanks rolli, I installed it, but the screen seems to flicker and then fill with weird characters when I turn it on. When it restarts, it seems to be fine if I start to Last Known Good Config. It does it again when I restart. Any idea what's going on?

If the only change was the ram then resetting BIOS to defaults could be a solution. (easy way is to remove the motherboard battery for a few seconds)
