Very hard to find information about that computer or motherboard. CPU-Z information is very probably wrong as DDR2 motherboard supporting at most 1 GB RAM sound very strange.
That information is likely taken from BIOS and it's well possible that it's was outdated when bigger memory modules came into market.
So I except that besides compatibility problems, you should be able to add another 1GB memory.

One manual is Korean and another some other language I don't understand so those links are not much help. I really need english manual (not available?) or have to stick with my opinon (on post #2).

the best way as it turned out was to write down current ram's model number and google it. Mine landed here
DDR2 1GB PC2 5300 333MHz 1.80 V
Is normal DDR2 that can be found from many other manufacturers also. However that does not tell anything about motherboard and that's the problem. So #2 is best I can do. Luckily 1 GB DDR2 is quite cheap so you're not losing much even it doesn't work.

Will it harm the mobo if its built only to take 1gb?
Should not, 99.9% not. Nothing on computers is 100%.

I bought a KPN424-ELG one and it fits in the slot and computer booted to have 2GB RAM without a hitch. Thanks for all for helping me acheive this tour de force. Specially @Drillingmachine. Though it's still single channel I am not complaining. Maybe its the way the motherboard was supposed to behave. Me cheerful.
