Ok, so either way it doesn't look like I'm running low on ram?
I forgot to mention - since I'm booting from a CF card, I'm running with no swap and the 'toram' boot option. So there's no flexibility on that upper limit.
Which is incidentally why I ended up choosing DSL over Puppy. I started out with Puppy, being slightly less minimalistic, some useful scripts & GUI things for n00bs. But it created a swap file without me noticing it, until I wondered why the hard drive light was flashing.. DSL has more of a learning curve, but at least it isn't second-guessing me like that!
