Memory leaks are a result of programs not releasing all of their memory when you close them. That's one reason why I shut my pc down every night....
That is not necessary in XP.
Two 128Mb sticks of memory are the minimum required for XP, and, IMO, not enough. XP likes memory. Check your motherboard to see what it supports, and if you can, opt for a single 512 or two 256 sticks for better performance.

I suspect you have a built in videocard and it uses shared memory, which accounts for the lost 8mb of memory.
As for memory free, yes, that is normal. Windows will easily use 100+ memory with a few programs running.

Sometimes it is in BIOS, sometimes it is a jumper on the motherboard, sometimes it is not possible.
what kind of motherboard?

I used to work in a bank server room. Our xp workstations were usually rebooted every 8 hours. I can't say for sure wether they were memory leaks or what but they sure ran faster and better after a reboot.
