ISA
ISA
VESA (VL)
PCI
AGP
16 bit ISA & VL are multi-compatibility slots, eg an 8 bit ISA will fit into the first part of the connector; a 16 bit ISA will fit into the first part of a VL connector. 

EISA slots look like ISA but are twice as deep.  8 bit and 16 bit ISA will fit into the top part of the connector.  EISA, PCI, MCA and AGP cards will omly fit their own connector types.
