Memory usage by different databases

I have a Windows 2000 Server with SQL Server 2000. It has 2 GB of memory and SQL Server is dynamically managing memory. Some Queries are timing out. After some research I found that the box is suffering from memory shortage. There are about 20 databases on the box and not all are actively used. Is there a way to find out how much memory is used by different databases so that I can make a decision which are the right candidates to be taken off the box?
What stats did you gather to determine there isn't enough memory? Whether SQL Server is dynamically managing memory or not isn't going to have an effect on whether there is a memory shortage. You can use dbcc memusage to gather memory stats by database.
