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

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Generally this concept is obsolete.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.

I am going to add more RAM later it will probably be in the 3 to 400 range so I think it will be enough I dont care if it takes a wile to boot up
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.
