DDR vs. DDR2 Question

I'm running CentOS 5 and am looking at a new Asus AM2 MB (64-bit) that takes DDR2 RAM. To try to save a little money right now, could I get by with transfering over my DDR RAM from my old Asus 32-bit MB or is the pin arrangement different requiring actual DDR2 memory? I know I won't get the best performance but this is just a temporary move.

Thanks for you help.
