If the RAM does not show in system profiler then it is either not seated properly, it's bad, or simply not compatible with your machine. Please remove and re-insert the RAM stick, this time making sure you feel a slight thump when it is completely inserted. After that, perform a SMC and PRAM reset, which is always a good idea when introducing new hardware to a Mac. As far as the 256MB RAM, like RDKL pointed out, that is integrated into the LogicBoard itself and is not removable.
