If your friends Identifier is correct (4,1) that machine is an early 2001 imac and has a MAX RAM 0F
It came with just 64MB RAM on the motherboard (I don't know if that one is upgradeable. Even if it is you do not want to open that can of worms ) and you can easily add Ram just by removing an access cap on the back of the computer. It takes PC-100 3.3V 168-pin SDRAM. Before you do anything, go Crucial.com and run their scanner. It will tell you what you need to now. (I sure hope you have not already bought a 2GB module. Good luck.
FYI-you posted this on the MacBook Pro forum. Should have been on Imac.
No 800MHz is the wrong ram for the 4,1 and 5,1 Intel iMac models, they use PC2-5300 667MHz 200pin modules and you need to find out exactly which iMac she has?
1. The 2006 Early Core Duo's and all the 17" 2006 Mid and Late Core 2 Duo's only support 2GB of ram, a 1GB module in each slot.

2. The 2006 20 and 24" Late Core 2 Duo's will only support 3GB of ram, but can take a 2GB module in each slot.
