Toshiba Laptop

I was given an old laptop recently and was looking for a bit of help. Its a toshiba satelite series 4200 pentium 3. I am planning to give it to my wee sister but was wanting to increase memory.

How would i first find what type is suitable and what the maximum memory i could insert.was looking at maybe 512mb. it currently has windows 2000 and know how to put xp on it,but the memory increase is confusing me.

Any help would be appreciated.
