You need to boot linux with 'mem=96whatever' whatever your cmos reports in
K, as I'm too lazy to figure it out.

to grow past about 13MB.

cache_swap 29000
cache_swap_low 75
cache_swap_high 90
maximum_object_size 120000

Those are the important ones, really.. They're from my squid.conf, change
to suit your own..
