ps. re: memory

I did HOWEVER find info. about my memory questions in the manual, so that part was very helpful. : )

Apparently, I can expand up to 384 MBs of SDRAM DIMM expandable memory (not that I know exactly what that technically is, but I wrote it down and can search online or ask at the computer store).
