What motherboard are you using? Typically to use dual channel the mem sticks need to be in slots of the same color. I have never seen it different than that, but that's not to say some off the wall board isn't the same color.

That board has a total of four memory slots... Two Green and Two Purple... It does support dual channel memory kits at up to DDR1 400MHz clock speeds.
