So what's the diff between dual channel and not dual channel? Just not having two sticks, and if so, how's this better than one stick of 1gig?

If your motherboard supports dual channel you should get 2 sticks to take advantage of it. It will be faster than 1 stick of 1GB in single channel.

Any DDR stick can run in dual channel as long as your motherboard supports it and you have two sticks of the same type/size and preferably same brand.

Dual-channel gives a performance boost.
