Adding memory

I desperately need to increase the memory on my PC. I just installed windows professional 2003 (used to run 2001 home edition), and while everything was slow before, now it’s even slower. Our tech guy advised us to upgrade memory on some of our computers that are older, currently have 256 MB ram. I could call him to do the upgrade, but he’s not very accessible and I gotta do something now.

I have a Dell Dimension 2350 with 1.99 GHz, Pentium 4 CPU and 256 MB Ram. I did some online checking and this pc has 2 memory slots that can hold 512 MB each. Do you think I should add the max memory (take out the 256, add 2 512’s) or just add one 512? And—can I do this myself, having never done it before?
