I have 2GB of RAM, run samba, apache, postfix, X, evolution, mozilla,
gnome-terminal, etc. and this is what free says:

arrakeen: ~$ free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          2023        520       1502          0        112        128
-/+ buffers/cache:        279       1743
Swap:          133          0        133

So, unless you're really bogged down in system resources, you might not
need it at all...
