Hi, I just found the inconsistency of used memory report from top/free and

only 120MB. I am using FC3

Which line of the "free" output are you looking at?

The one to use is the one that starts "-/+ buffers/cache:"; this line does not include memory used by the kernel for buffers and cache, which can be reclaimed and used for other applications if necessary. Does that line line up with the "System Monitor" output?
