ubuntu 9.04


I am going to proceed to install extra memory in my Laptop, I would like to ask if my distribution Gnome ubuntu 9.04 would recognize the new memory?
And if so how do I see the amount of memory that I have using Ubuntu?
thank you

Running a top or lshw will give you some info

Personally I dont see any probs with your upgrade. But you can always remove it if it fails to boot.

Check the bios settings first before you boot into the OS to make sure its picked up the new stuff

Regards
