uh.... eeewwww... "ram drive"... Anyhow, that's old baggage for old tech. For Win2K, if you want to allocate space for a temporary internet files and temporary system files, your easiest and most efficient bet is just to create a 1GB partition and then move your system and internet file folder there. To do this, simply right mouse click "my computer" > "advanced" > "environment variables": and change all instances of TEMP and TMP to the path and directory of your temp file partition. I have a partition on my system specifically for temp files like that. I also use it as my scratch disk for photoshop. AS for IE, simply go through internet tools and move the temporary internet files folder. Then ur good to go.
