Default More RAM than It can Handle!

Does anyone know what happens if you go over the amount of RAM that your mobo can handle. For example: if you had three slots and the max ur mobo could take is 2GB and you had two 1GB sticks in 2 slots and a 256MB in the third slot. Do you get a BIOS beep code, and your system doesn't start????
