[Techtalk] RAM usage

I will be adding some extra RAM to my Linux system. Is there anyway at bootup
time or LILO boot options that will make optimal use of the RAM? The system
will have 192MB. Although quite a lot of user have more memory, it looks like
most memory is being used up. Is there anyway to flush the RAM of apps that
have been closed? Last but least, how can I use RAM disks for particular
applications (or is it a function of kernel only?)?

Any pointers or info appreciated.
