The only precaution you have to take is make sure that you laptop supports more memory before buying it... besides that nothing else, you souldn't have any problems with either of your operating systems. Once you install the extra memory you could decrese the virtual memory usage (in xp from the system propierties and in ubuntu using swappiness)
