you should not count sizes of all processess together - many memory pages
are shared between processes.

-> thats all.Box is PII 266 ,98RAM :)It stays about 3 days...and eating memory
-> and then starts to swaping...and u know..what happens at the end :)

It seems you have a memory leak in your system - apache or its scripts. Try
to upgrade to the newest version of apache. You can also try limit
MaxRequestsPerChild (0 is no limit - try 100 for example)

Maybe you have leaking libraries - try upgrading to newest NetBSD. 

You can also try some malloc-debugging libraries. Or some programs that
analyze what is using virtual memory...
