I think that Lion requirements are software based (please do correct me if I am wrong) so could you tell us what version you are running?

(apple icon>about this mac)

I think that anything above 10.5.0 is compatible with Lion

Your Macbook will be fine, assuming you have enough RAM (which you can upgrade).

Lion requirements: 64-bit CPU, 2 GB of RAM | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog

Keep in mind that your model Macbook can only utilise just a tad over 3GB (if I recall correctly, it's 3.03).
I'd still get 2x2GB as it is best to have matched RAM.
