According to the specs of the machine, 80Mb of ram is the max supported. You cannot go over this amount as the laptop will not recognize it.
Since the machine is old, the only other thing that will help it perform better is a faster rpm hard drive. The investment may outweigh the benefits, and the drive will not run at the highest rated DMA. Hard drives will transfer data at different speeds depending on whether or not the motherboard controllers supports it. Your machine will transfer data at the same rate as it does now (probably 33mbs/sec), and the only difference will be that the hard drive will spin faster.
Basically, it may not be financially beneficial to even mess with it.
Sorry for the bad news.
