**** Answered by Michael Current, aa700:

1. The largest amount of memory in an 800XL that I've heard of is the 4 Meg
upgrade from Newell Industries.  My American T.V. catalog lists this 
upgrade, minus RAM chips, for $42.50.

2. Yes!  There are a number of memory upgrade instructions located here
in the Atari SIG.  Look in the Atari Library, on the Misc. Information
board.

3. I don't know for sure, but I would expect the upgrade parts are fairly
easy to obtain.

Hope this helps!
