I'm assuming from the FCC header that you're on some sort of Unix-like
system, but I've no idea if that's what you do your R work on.  What
follows is for Unix(ish) systems.

1) 554 Kb is just the most recent request to allocate more memory;
there might've been a lot of memory grabbed by R before that.

2) If that's not the problem, get your system administrator to increase
your memory quotas (man ulimit should clarify).
