The simple answer is that yes you should be able to add more memory.

If you know the make and model of the PC, or the make and model of the motherboard, the major memory manufactures can help you select the correct RAM for your PC.

Try www.crucial.com
or www.kingston.com

If this is a PII, it is apt to use 168 pin SDRAM DIMM memory.
Not all DIMMS are compatible with all motherboards, so make sure that you can return the memory if it does not work in your system.

In fact, you might want to take the PC into a small locally owned PC store, and allow them to match the RAM to your PC for you.

One final note, for Windows 9X, you want to limit your maximum RAM to between 196MB, and 384MB.

I'm gonna add an addendum to Chas's answer. Motherboards, [and to a lessor extent, the chipset and the MoBo BIOS] are the limiting factor on how much physical memory you can have. A Pentium II processor, in and of itself doesn't limit the total physical memory amount. If your MoBo has 2 168 pin dimm slots, but can only handle 512 MB of addressable memory, that's it [without a BIOS and chipset upgrade].
