There were significant changes in Memoir 1.6 (in comparison to Memoir  
1.2). I think the teTeX release used version 1.2, so I suggest you  
search through the current memman.pdf (texdoc memman) to find your  
answer. Some things that required low-level hacking to get done, are  
now easy to achieve.

The dirty trick of \setlength{\parindent}{0pt} will probably work,  
but may produce undesired results.
