In DOS, something like the ' mem ' command.   I for the life can't remember how to tell,  so any help is welcomed.

thanks

"vmstat" should tell you how much memory and virtual memory you have left on your box.
Do a "man vmstat" for more details.

In addition to 'vmstat', you can use commands like 'bdf' / 'df' to know the status disk space.
These two 'bdf' and 'df' are for different platforms, find out which one works on yours.
