Thanks HowEver. Just after posting my question I went to CanadaRAM's site (remembering that they post here) and found the RAM, but they are in BC and I need someone in the GTA so that they can also install it for me.
My Mini is the first model Apple released, the G4 with a 40 gig drive and 256 megs of RAM. I think the processor speed is 1.25 gigs or something like it.
Tilt familiarize yourself with the putty knife and install it yourself. Go to Tigerdirect near Brant Street and get a 1Gb stick of ram.

Opening a mini is sometimes not easy, and the noise it can make is a little unsettling. However, besides scratching it a bit you should be pretty safe. There are video on youtube that show what to expect.
I've done a bunch of them and if it's been opened before it won't be that bad. Putting back together is a 'snap' literally.

I would like to thank EhMacer Jef. Jef today spent a few hours with me starting from coming to TigerDirect and buying RAM, hard disc and enclosure for the old hard disc, and then upgrading my G4 Mac Mini's RAM, hard disc, putting the old drive in the enclosure and migrating everything to the new one; and then upgrading the RAM on my MacBook.
All this with coffee included Jef, I owe you big time.
