When I used the win98 startup disk, it loaded tools into a ram drive, why cant a ram drive be used for the swap file? more and more ram is able to be fitted onto motherboards, it seems this would provide a faster means of having a swap file.

Thanks Diodorus, and I thought it was a crazy idea...Still learning about computers, still at basic level, thanks again.
