RAM Question for new laptop...

  1. Yo, I recently purchased a new Compaq Presario V2000 and I wanted to upgrade the RAM in this laptop (the RAM is currently at 512 MB). This Laptop supports 2 slots (DDR 333 PC2700). The laptop has two sticks of 256 MB DDR SDRAM.

    What I want to do is upgrade the RAM to 1024 MB and I was thinking of purchasing this RAM set...

    Patriot 1GB (2 x 512MB) 200-Pin DDR SO-DIMM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Dual Channel Kit Notebook Memory Model PDC1G2700SLLK - Retail

    What my concern is that this is Dual Channel and I don't know if my laptop will support Dual Channel. Does anyone have knowledge about this type of laptop and whether this laptop will support the RAM?

    (P.S.: Is there any different way to install RAM on a laptop that's different from installing RAM on a desktop PC? If so, what is different?)
