Help!

server is at 2.26 (1 cpu)
Memory use is at 95.9% - been running this way for an hour or so.

Server specs: Pentium 4, 2.4 1GB RAM, 80GB HD.

Here are the currently running processes. I know this is way too many. What is wrong? What is initiating all these processes? Here is the contents of my crontab -e.
