hehe, well I wasn't referring to only you, Douglas but everybody whow
as waiting for the output of uname. And i do appriciate the
information you gave me. Though I've been running around in Linux
World for a while now, I haven't found the time to get myself a lot
further than just using it as a webserver.

Anyway, you happen to know a command that like really tells me what
processes are consuming memory? I know top, but no matter how close I
look I cannot find all of the memory used in it's output.

Thanks!
