This is the output of free.  It IS using it, its not cached.

fudd:/home# free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:           374        371          3          0          0         28
-/+ buffers/cache:        342         32
Swap:          384          4        380

This is my partition layout aswell:

fudd:/home# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                      1.4G  157M  1.2G  12% /
                       15M  7.7M  7.7M  50% /boot
                      2.4G  1.3G  1.1G  52% /usr
                      1.9G   98M  1.8G   6% /var
                       27G   21G  6.2G  78% /home

All but / are xfs partitions.
