Default IBM A22M Series ThinkPad Type 2652 notebook/laptop. worth upgrading?

Okay so i am currently working information technology/computer repair guy at a non profit organization. we came across an old old old ibm thinkpad a22m series type 2652. i need to know if i can upgrade this to at least 1 gb of ram and maybe a larger hard drive. but since i do not know currently what is in there. im thinking we can upgrade it and make it work with xp, or even linux to run through some of our programs but i wanted to ask you guys what you thought i should do. scrap it or upgrade it?

The limit is 1GB. Computer memory upgrades for IBM ThinkPad A22m Series (Type 2652) Laptop/Notebook from Crucial.com

The drive is most likely IDE. What do you currently have and what do you want to upgrade it to?

What do you currently have and what do you want to upgrade it to?

You most likely have to set Boot Priority in BIOS.
