memory usage - any better tools than task manager for memory usage analysis

In a 2000 Terminal Server I have a situation where more memory is being used than task manager shows being utilized by various processes - in other words I add up all the memory of task manager processes and it doesn't add up to the amount that is being used. I'm out about a gig. One of the symptoms seems to be that after a certain number of users - regardless of who those users are - when the next user gets on a big whack of memory disappears and yet the user's processes don't explain it. It doesn't make a difference who the user is or what they are doing - it's as if there is a boundary and then when that boundary is hit a big clump of memory gets 'reserved' for the next clump. Are there any tools outside of task manager that show exactly what processes are taking up RAM - in other words account for every 'bit' of RAM - what's where - almost a memory map.
