How to install SDRAM into old TP 240 -- please help?

    I've got an old TP 240 (ultralight) and need to install a 128MB SDRAM chip.
    I thought it would be obvious where the RAM panel is on the bottom of the
    unit, but, to me, it's not.

    I tried the IBM site and elsewhere but can't find a diagram or instructions.

    Can someone kindly help?

    Under the keyboard, just remove the 3 screws at the bottom and pop it up.

    Thanks so much for replying. I love this group.

    I saw the three screws with little markings that look like an SDRAM but I
    couldn't figure out what was accomplished by unscrewing them.

    Are you saying I unscrew those (at the bottom of the notebook), then flip
    over the notebook and pry the keyboard up? The whole keyboard comes up all
    at once?

    Thanks again.

    JHEM, Teknoho, thanks so much. I got it done and didn't manage to demolish
    the thing.
