How do I install the extra memory under the keyboard for a ThinkPad R51 Series (Type 1830)? Which screws on the bottom do I take out? They are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. in groups. I am sure I don't...

You can find the Hardware and Maintenance Manual here, which gives all the details on removing the keyboard. But this model ships with the standard memory under the keyboard (in a single DIMM socket). Optional memory (again, just a single available socket) is installed from the bottom of the computer. You don't need to remove the keyboard, just loosen one screw that secures the cover over the memory socket. Page 71 in the manual shows the location.
