How to expand virtual machine RAM on VMRCplus

I have never used VMRCplus, but I have used other virtual machine software like virtualBox.  In virtual box you can expand the amount of RAM available to a VM pretty easily, as long as the machine is shut down.

My network admin says that there is no way to expand the RAM for a machine once it is setup.  I am not sure I believe that, I think he just doesn't know how but doesn't want to say it.  When he initially built the VM, he only gave it 2 GB of RAM.  That was fine back then, but now I am using the VM for much more intensive stuff, and therefore need more RAM.

Is this possible?  A link with step-by-step instructions (and pictures) would be preferred.  Thanks.

I assume that you are using some flavor of Virtual Server 2005. Changing RAM is trivial. Just shut down the VM, and go the the VM settings and you can change the RAM. I don't have the step by step in front of me because I stopped using VMRC plus 2 years ago when I moved to Hyper-V.
