I have 4 DDR2 ram sockets, 2 of which are not used, can I now install my 2 X 2Gb memory cards straight into these sockets or would I need to substitute the new for the old? P.

Am I correct in assuming that you have bought another 2 x 2GB of RAM? If so providing it is the same as what already installed then yes you can just add it.

When posting about components its always good practise to mention make model size etc. You have mentioned RAM but only the quantity not the type/speed of the installed or the assumed extra, so very difficult to give a precise answer to your question.
