You have 640MB physical memory installed (2*256+128) and the task manager should show exactly that under Physical memory, Total. Note: The memory is shown in KB so you should read 640*1024 (Do the math yourself)
So you are saying that the OS and whatever default applications you load at startup uses about 200 MB? Hm, It does sounds like a lot. But its certainly not impossible. Du you have a lot of applications loaded at startup?
I use WXP, and usually around 80-100 MB of memory is used by the system and whatever applications I load at startup.
