Default Ram Question

Ok I have an old system with 32mb ram just collecting dust in my closet and I have just aquired another 32mb stick of ram. Now my cousin wants a computer, but isn't that old so just something he can mess with and can't pay anything for it. So my question is can I add my newly aquired 32mb ram to double it to 64, but the name brands are different? Will that cause it any problems? i know how to install ram, but I always buy 2 of the same which i why I don't know.
Please help.

As long as it's the same type of RAM and it'll fit then yeah it'll work, despite having different names. That shouldn't make a difference.
