RAM Install for my ibook

I have an ibook g4, late 2004 model with 256MB. It is dragging opening programs, freezes often, etc. I figure I could use a RAM boost. Will a 512MB upgrade get me there if I really only do e-mail, itunes and iphoto?

Can I pop the top and install it myself? I have done it on PCs, but I am a little scared of the mac.

Thanks!

I just upgraded to 1gb last night. It was much easier than I thought it would be, no more difficult than a PC. I ordered my upgrade from crucial.com. Go for it!

I think if you add 512 you will gain a significant amount of power for what you do, although down the line you may want to upgrade again to 1 gig.
It is very easy to upgrade the ram yourself and instructions come with the ibook, if you still have the documentation.
