I want to reserve part of my ram for temp storage and assign a drive letter. How do I do it in Linux?

Run this through Babelfish to get an English equiv:

Seems that

mkdir /mnt/ramdisk
# create the ramdisk mount point

mke2fs /dev/ram0
# make the ramdisk?

mount /dev/ram0 /mnt/ramdisk
# mount it

Should work.
