Memory sticks

Hi All .
I;m adding more memory for my laptop ..and i have 2 sticks 1GB & 2GB ,,
My question is ..Does it matter which slots they should be installed ...?
and should they affect performance if i put them in the wrong slots ..?
Thanks in advance .

Well, are you replacing the old ones?
Are they matched? (Same Speed)

Doesn't matter which slots (it may matter if we had four slots in a desktop). Order doesn't matter. This is after the fact, but if one stick is slower than the other, that will be the default for both.
