They should yes.  I actually remember working with an IBM desktop once
where IBM said the machine supported up to 512MB ram, while Crucial said
it supported 1GB of ram.  Apparently IBM only documented what they had
actually tested, while the chipset could theoretically support 1GB just
fine (as could the bios).  It did in fact work with 1GB but the docs
were never updated to say it did.
