This sounds like you're simply running out of memory - from the fork man page:

ENOMEM fork() failed to allocate the necessary kernel structures because memory is tight.

You can use the 'free' command to see how much memory and swap the machine has and how much is in use - if that doesn't just show you're low on memory, please paste the output here.
