"free" gives me the following outout on my workstation:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       1550840    1308096     242744          0      94244     859148
-/+ buffers/cache:     354704    1196136
Swap:       522104      23868     498236

About 84% memory is used. But about 900MB are used for caching and
buffering, so in fact there are only about 346MB in "real use".
If your memory is 99% without buffers and cache, then there is
something wrong (but I don't know what).
Can you see a process that consumes that much memory when you are
calling "ps" or "top"?
What kind of kernel do you use?
