This doesen't look like a problem but like a perfectly healthy server.
No metter how much RAM you put in it there'll always be only about 2 megs
left, because of machine's fs caching, that uses any free ram to hold
pieces of often used files.

What you should look at is swap that is used (3 megs? only? and that's a

now of course you should demand more ram, common, squid is a real memory
hogger, but you can tell it how much ram you want it to use
(things like cache_mem etc),
, apache can eat memory like crazy ( especially
