freebsd 6.1 user memory
well i just installed freebsd and i'm using gnome. by looking at the system monitor i can see that when i download something my user memory is being used (downloading a file using firefox 1.5). this memory is the ram right? well my question is why does this do that? is it supposed to? and what happens if i download a file that is bigger than my memory and my swap? shouldn't files be downloading straight to my harddrive, instead of being stored in my system memory?
last night i downloaded an iso file and this morning when i woke up my pc was froze....
