RamDrive for NT4

I would create a ramdrive for NT4 (I have SP4 installed). I use the ramdrive.sys from Microsoft (you can download it from http://www.jsiinc.com/TIP0000/rh0020.htm).
When I run all the instructions there is no ramdrive available...

Whats my problem? Any other ramdrivers ... ?

Bye and thanks

OK.  The device file (ramdisk.sys) has to reside in the Drivers subdirectory ie: c:\winnt\system32\drivers.  Try putting it there and rebooting the machine.

I can't start the service "ramdrive", because there is no service in the services windows.
The RAMDRIVE isn't actually installed as a service - it is installed as a device.  Have you had a look at the status of the device in the "Deviecs" applet in Control Panel?

Hi and thanks korvan,
you are right. The ramdrive is installed as a device. When I try to start the device ramdrive I ger the following error message:

"... ramdrive cant start....
 Error 0002: The system can't find the specified file ...."

(translated into english)

I have copied the ramdrive.sys into the sytem32 directory and add the following stuff to the registry:

    Type = REG_DWORD 0x00000001
    Start = REG_DWORD 0x00000001
    ErrorControl = REG_DWORD 0x00000001
    Group = Primary disk
        BreakOnEntry = REG_DWORD 0x00000000
        DebugLevel = REG_DWORD 0x00000000
        DiskSize = REG_DWORD 0x00100000
        DriveLetter = V:
        RootDirEntries = REG_DWORD 0x00000200
        SectorsPerCluster = REG_DWORD 0x00000002"

Is everybody using this device?
