My com has two 512MB and one 256MB, which clearly is more than 1GB of memory. However when I tried "/usr/bin/free", it reports like the following. Where did the rest of the memory go?
Code:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        905268     120536     784732          0       6912      64892
-/+ buffers/cache:      48732     856536
Swap:      2763172          0    2763172
