Hi Matt,
Not much to go on here - is your system 32bit or 64bit.  How much  
memory did you have before the upgrade, how much after?  If you system  
is 32bit is PAE enabled?  After adding the RAM did you see the new  
memory in "dmesg" or in "top" even?

taking a wild guess - you should be all set (assuming you are using a  
default kernel on a 64bit system).
