    I have a process just called 'kernal_task' that takes about 100 mb of RAM. It also uses close to 1 Gb of virtual memory. Is this normal?

    Yep. Mine's almost exactly the same. Depending on your setup, your usage and available RAM, I wouldn't be surprised to see much larger figures either. :)
