Creating RAM drive

Hi I want to know how to make a RAM drive so I can put Q3 on it or something
what I want to know:
1: how to load programs off of the RAM
2: how I can view it
3: how I can change it without restarting (hopefully)

I have right now 64 megs of ram
8gig HD soon to be 22gig
Abit BE6 motherboard Windows 98

That's not the point. RAM disks will *conflict* with windows normal operation. Windows is already treating your memory that way. Don't do this, you won't be happy with the results.

Generally this concept is obsolete. Windows manages your RAM like a RAM drive and anything you do in this vein will generally cause a performance hit instead of a boost as your RAM disk will take away from the RAM that windows uses.
