    I think you said this was a server, didn't you?

    You neglected to mention that you're running X and Nautilus on this
    server. You probably don't need this stuff running on a server, and
    it is chewing up a good amount of RAM. If you don't absolutely need
    X, try bringing the system up in run level 3 and see if your problem
    disappears...

    Memory usage (as reported below) of named looks fine.

    This is probably a big waste:

    [etc. snipped]

    You also seem to have someone on the system running win4lin and
    multiple instances of adobe acrobat reader. If this is really a
    server, perhaps it would be better to have them run those things
    elsewhere...

    Hope that helps
