Did any of the installation booklets/posters tell you? My iMac documentation had directions on how to upgrade user accessible memory.

I upgraded the ram in my ibook a couple of days ago and it was very simple. Although the pbook has a slightly different layout (unfortunately I don't have one . . . yet, so I can't actually upgrade one and give you more thorough advice) but this video

http://www.transintl.com/mov/pbg4-mem-cip.mov

demonstrates how to do it on one. Hope this helps . . . its too easy of a process, and only takes a few minutes, to have to pay someone to do it.

That's MUCH easier than an iBook. I had/got to install memory into about 50 iBooks over the summer, and it was a pain in the ass. After taking of the keyboard, you had to wedge the Airport card out, then you had to unscrew the tiniest most frustrating screw ever, and the finally you were down to the level that the RAM was on. And do you dare lose that screw otherwise you're.. well... screwed. This loooks like you just pop out the keyboard and it's right there.
