Default Specific memory question

I'v looked all over the net and I can't seem to find out if the Mushkin 991373 2GB 2-pack PC3200 DDR400 memory is dual channel or not. Some places say it is but some don't, I'd like to know.

As long as 2 sticks are identical, you can be assured that they are CAPABLE of running in dual channel. Memory doesn't have a 'dual channel' feature. That involves the memory controller if you're using an Athlon 64.

Alright thanks, how do I get it to be in dual channel mode? The two sticks are exactly identical and they fill up the two memory slots.

Assuming you're using components that support the dual channel, then refer to your motherboard manual. There will be two slots that correspond to each other. Just make sure the sticks are in the right slots! USUALLY, those slots are of the same color, although that is not always the case.
