The stock 512 MB stick is soldered on to the logic board, so you can go to 1.5 GB RAM if you buy a 1 GB stick and pop it in.

Well, the very last revision of the iBook (1.33GHz 12" and 1.42GHz 14" both with the Radeon 9550) changed from having a 256MB card + 256 soldered to the logic bard to having 512MB soldered to the logic board and shipping with a free slot.

So, the last revision iBook, if that's what yours is, has a maximum RAM limit of 1.5GB. If you have 768MB then you would have to remove the 265MB card which is installed in the RAM slot.
