If it were me, I'd remove the old and only put in the new.

XP isn't going to see much benefit from more than 2GB of RAM, unless you're playing some of the newest graphic intensive games. You're also less likely to have stability troubles that can sometimes occur when combining different sticks of RAM. It's best if they're all the same.
