    I believe this is covered by whatever materials came with your machine.

    Apple.com: Support: Manuals: Your model

    The RAM is behind a panel in the battery compartment, you need to remove 3 small Phillips screws and pull out an "L" shaped piece of metal.

    When you install the RAM you must push it into the socket quite firmly. There is an initial "thunk" which you may think means it is finished -- it's not. You have to get both thumbs on the RAM and push it in another 2mm (1/8") to seat it all the way into the socket.

    Thanks

    Here's the doc from Apple for the Macbooks.

    Some have reported that size 00 screwdriver did not work, but I had no trouble with that. Just make sure you don't damage or lose the screws.
