Original Question.
How do I set the maximum memory a process can use ?. Thanx in advance.

Well there is not much summary to this question. This can be done easily
using the "limit/ulimit" commands for the current shell and its decendents.
This can also be done in the Kernel by doing an adb of the kernel to change
the default value of rlimits parameters. If some one is interested I can
provide more details on this. Thanx
