Although I'am not sure about this but I believe in order to run Dual Channel all 4 rams have to be of the same bus speed (eg.667mhz each) and atleast identical amount of ram in slots 1 - 3 & 2 - 4 (Eg.1gb 667mhz on slots 1 & 3 while say 2gb on 2 & 4). Having said this I would believe that if everything is same on all the slots then the ram would run perfectly on DC.
As far as different vendors is concerned I dont think there is going to be too much difference apart from that of latency..

I have 2x512MB stick of DDR400 and 2x256MB stick of DDR266 ..
Now my 512 sticks sits in channels 1 and 3 and the 256 sticks in 2 and 4.
They run in dual channel mode but at the reduced speed of DDR266 .Thats the price i needed to pay to have 1.5GB RAM with the minimum expenditure.
Hope this helps..
Thanks buddy....and moreover I had confirmed this from Choto Cheeta so I dont think I should have any more doubts....
