How to increase buffer size in Unix

The "top" command shows that my buffer size is always at 137M, which I think has reached to the maximum. However, Ido have lots of Inative memory? Is it possible to increae the buffer size? and what is the command for that? Further, this is the buffer for writing to the hard disk?

you might want to look at this article: http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/2770 it is about optimizing Linux Memory Usage.
