Though you did not tell us, I believe you are using a 32-bit system, 
which mean that depending on the combination of hardware and operating 
system, a user process can get between 2 and about 3 GB of virtual 
memory maximum. This is hardware (Intel, AMD, PowerPC, Sparc, 
...)/operating system (Linux, UNIX, MAC OS X, Windows 
98/Me/XP/Vista/Server2003...) dependent.

ClearSystemCache["Numeric"] or ClearSystemCache[] might help reclaiming 
some memory (assuming you are using version 6.x.x).

Anyway, it is really hard to be specific without any hint about your 
hardware, software, and the system you are trying to solve.
