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
