Crucial are always a good (safe) bet for RAM, in recent times though,
I've found myself using a local Irish outfit, memoryc.com, based in
Celbridge they're good, and their returns policy / procedure (when I
picked the wrong stick) was simplicity itself.
To identify the RAM, just open the lid, pop out a stick and see what's
written on it ... probably like PC2700 or DDR-333 or along those lines,
but with 1G in the box, odds are it's 4 * 256MB modules, meaning you
need to get a full batch !
