Right, I've currently got an iBook G4 1.33GHz , so its not exactly bad.
The one problem is though that expose continues to crash my computer. It's usually when I have a few programs running at the same time, such as Safari, iTunes, MSN Messenger, Limewire. That's what crashed it just now.

I've got expose set up so that when I hover over the bottom left corner it shows all open apps. However, quite often expose doesn't work, and causes the dock to crash. Is there any reason for this? Can I restart the dock or expose in any way? Or am I using too many programs at the same time?

Thanks for anything, Ben

Even by running those problems, you shouldn't really be maxing out the RAM enough to crash. If you only have 256mb you should definatly upgrade to 512mb at least. But I think you have some sort of other problem...

I've got 768mb RAM, so I really don't get it. It's stopped happening recently, not sure whether it was something I was doing at the time, or something I'm doing now, but it all seems to have smoothed itself out.
