You should visit the Crucial or Kingston websites as they have (I'm told) an upgrade tool which identifies RAM suitable for your mobo. For the limit on RAM capacity see the MSI website - or the HP website where I've just been, its 2GB maximum (1GB in each slot). I suggest you get another 512MB stick to bring your system to 1GB. More than enough for anything your going to do with it IMHO.
Re the hard drive your pretty safe below 132GB above that you need to be sure your BIOS will access the extra space. Your hard drive controller is ATA 100 - in which case any IDE drive will do. Probably best to order an ATA 133 88pin cable to suit the drive, just in case you have an older cable in the machine.
