Yes, that configuration would run in dual channel, although you'll have to watch out for possible RAM conflicts - sometimes different RAM just doesn't work together.

Depending on how your motherboard requires them. Match capacity with color

Yeap. That should do the trick. Once you've put them in place, boot up and download CPU-Z. It should tell you if it's in Dual Channel

Your motherboard manual will tell you what the slot assignments are...and when you boot up you'll see the "dual channel" message on the screen just below the processor info..
In my experience most motherboards are configured for 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 for dual channel mode...
What motherboard do you have?

In that motherboard. for dual channel you must put in slots 1 and 3(Channel A), 2 and 4(Channel B)

Install the RAM like this
Slot 1 1 Gig
Slot 2 512 Meg
Slot 3 1 Gig
Slot 4 512 Meg

But, I have the same setup in the kids computer 2 x 1gig and 2 x 512 = 3 gig in Dual Channel.
