My son's girlfriend has a Mac G5, needs to upgrade to Leopard to install iTunes and hence her iPod. they've bought Leopard but it says they need 512mb ram at least - hers has 256mb.
Are there any free tools available which they can run which will identify exactly which memory is needed to match & increase the existing?
I've no probs doing this on a PC but the last time I touched a Mac was about 8 yrs ago.......
The other problem is they're in London, I'm in Yorkshire!

The easiest way to find memory is to goto (this is not an advertisement just a sugestion) www.4allmemory.com. They make the process simple. I would probably recommend getting 2 GB of ram. Good Luck.
The first thing to do is to actually get the speed of the G5 processor (model) of the iMac they will be upgrading. You can get this by simply opening "About this Mac" from the Apple menu. Once you have done that, follow this link:
On that page there are three options to choose:
2. Product Line (iMac in this case)
3. Model (G5 1.6-2.1GHz and with iSight)
Make your choices and from there Crucial will tell you which RAM is compatible with your system and how much of it you can have. As well as the price
Hope that helps,
