Thanks for checking this out. I had Apache to serve out an "online mp3 player", a project done in php. As soon as Apache started, it forked itself a cpuple of times and in total used >64MB of my precious 200MB, which had the pc maxxed out right after booting. I guess I will try again with a faster pc and a new installation :(

You can adjust how many copies of itself Apache forks on startup.  I
sometimes adjust it downward for personal webservers that aren't going
to see more than a few hits at a time.  That said, a lot of the memory
used by each forked copy is actually shared code, and the copies that
aren't doing anything will eventually get swapped out and stay there. So it's not as big a hit as you'd think.
And of course you do have no gui running and a swap file? Could you post the output of "pstree -apul" and "cat /proc/meminfo"?
