There is no need to increase RAM simply because you are moving to BB. The laptop is OK as it is.

Just find yourself a suitable BB ISP.

Having said that, if you really want to upgrade your RAM have a look at click here

As Jackcoms states no need to do anything for BB
But more ram would improve your laptops performance

Thanks Jack and Iron
Pooter runs slow now just had a thought that bb would make it run at steam power. I know it's old(ish 4 years) but thought more ram would make it to trabant pace!!!!

"Pooter runs slow now"

That's because 256MB RAM is about the minimum to run XP.

Increasing RAM to, say, 512MB will indeed make the laptop run faster.

BB will have no effect at all on computer speed.
