You'll find it very easy to do.
Just make sure to discharge your static first, or better use an earthing strap.

Hey guys. I just bought my new mac mini. It comes with 2 MB of RAM and I ordered the 2 sticks of 4MB to upgrade it to MAX. Is it OK to upgrade it before I ever turn the unit on? Or should I get it set up and then upgrade the RAM. Just ensuring I do this the right way.

It might be a good idea to turn it on and make sure it works before attempting the upgrade.
This way if you'll know it's something you did if it does not work after the upgrade.
