eBay is your friend for old crappy systems and old crappy ram. Price may go up with bidding, but it'll end likely under 10$. That's just one such auction, there are thousands, do a search for "256mb ram".

Used ram? That's one step away from actively looking for ways to maim your computer.

If the computer doesn't even have 512mb in it to begin with, do you REALLY think it's that big of an issue? Obviously this isn't exactly a mission critical computer we're talking about (the guy wants to run SkyOS on it). If 256megs of ram is too much for him to buy retail, then his only option IS used.
