Don't laugh - simple ][e questions

Hi chaps...

I just picked up an Apple ][e complete with DuoDisk box and orange
monitor. Great thing is it also has also the DOS 3.3 manuals and
disks and bits and pieces in their original packaging! All i paid for
was the petrol (yeah, i'm in England!) to go over and pick it up.
Opening up the case reveals that it has a number of cards plugged in
including a memory expansion card - does anyone know what size RAM
this gives me? how can i check (forgive me for i have not RTFM yet!).

It seems to work fine, so my big question is can i use any old 5 1/4"
disks in it? is it capable of formatting any old 5 1/4" disks? I ask
for two reasons: 1) so i can make back-up copies of the DOS 3.3 disks
and 2) so i can save stuff.
