Switching a 42t to a 44t Chainring

Am I correct in thinking that my chain (108 links) would neet to be increased/changed to 110 links?

Depends on how tight the fit is now.

See: http://sheldonbrown.com/derailer-adjustment and click on chain length.

I did it the way it says at your site and it worked. It ended up being 110 half links or 55 full links. Think you very much!
