SubjectMemory free report error (kernel-2.4.10-ac10)

I have installed and used kernel-2.4.10-ac10 on a SMP system (Dual P3)
using 768 MB Ram. Yet on startup of the system (RedHat 7.0), the system
resources are almost all used. Here are the files started:

Here is the report of the memory (free -m):
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 751 662 89 0 564 18
-/+ buffers/cache: 78 672
Swap: 133 0 133

Here is the version I am using (/proc/version):

Linux version 2.4.10-ac10 (root@base.torri.linux) (gcc version 3.0.2
20010908 (prerelease)) #2 SMP Wed Oct 10 14:16:51 EDT 2001

I have never run across this problem. I don't know where to begin or what
information is required to help debug this. Advise would be helpful.
