As of this morning I am having a problem starting up my iBook, and after doing a bit of research I've determined it's a RAM issue. When I try to start the machine it gives me three beeps and the LED light in front flashes, which seems to indicate that the memory isnt working properly.

On Apple's support site, they indicate that the first thing to try after encountering this kind of problem is re-seating the memory. How would I go about doing this? What's the next thing to try, aside from making yet another trip to the Apple store to get the problem diagnosed?

Accessing the ram on an iBook is fairly easy. You need a #0 Phillips head screw driver and your finger nails.
Great instructions are contained within!
