    Run this through Babelfish to get an English equiv:
    http://www.infoladen.de/pgp/ramdisk.htm

    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.

    More info on mke2fs:
