I want to expand the RAM in my Gateway 500SE computer

\015 I need more RAM in my 7-year-ol Gateway 500SE computer. I have learned that I can purchase two 512 MB modules and have a total of 1 GB RAM, while now I have only 256 KB. The modules do not come with installation instructions, but I was told that installation is quite easy. Unfortunately, I am a little 70-year-old lady who has no idea what is inside my "tower" or how to access its innards, much less what to do when I get inside. Could someone provide information to help me accomplish that installation?\015

I want to add memory. Currently we have 256 and our sales papers say it is expandable to 2GB. My system serial number is 0027629510. My serial number is IUMV22608247.
