    I am upgrading my RAM from 512 MB to the Max limit 2 GB.
    After I add the two 1GB RAMs and put the MacbookPro back together will I have to do some kind of reboot restore, or something like a hard drive backup restore, before it will all work? Or do you just replace the RAM cards and start it up and it works fine?

    You just replace the RAM and carry on as usual. There is nothing else you need to do. Enjoy.:)

    The machine will just boot up as normal, except when you check the hardware specs- Apple symbol in upper left corner, then 'about this mac', 'more info', 'memory', it will show the new ram that you just installed.
