I have just added 512Mb PC133 memory to the 256Mb PC100 memory on my Athlon XP1800 based machine. But would I be better just running the 512Mb on it's own as it would run a bit faster.

depends....

if u need more ram then use it all, if not then 512mb will do..

not much of an answer....

If your applications need more than 512M ram, then as Mysticnas says, you will be better off with both. If the applications don't need all the memory, then the 256M will slow it down. This site will tell you how much memory you need click here

Which version of Windows?

Currently Windows 98, but hopefully XP after Chrissy.

Actually your link Gongoozler answers my question, with XP it looks like I'm gonna need all the ram I can get for photo editing, all be it at a slower speed. Many thanks.

Whilst running Win98 only use the 512 on its own. Add the 256 to it after instaling XP.
