[ale] VMware Server 2.0 resource usage calculations.

Does anyone know how VMware Server 2.0 calculates memory usage.
I have 5 guests running and the GUI tells me that only 584MB is being 
used totally.  IMO, that is not much. 

I just installed a CentOS 5.2 guest today and did updates.  VMware is
telling me that the guest is using 25MB.  Free on the guest tells me
a totally different story.
