Hi guys...

I just updated my RAM from 112MB to 368MB (meaning I added 256MB) and wanted to create a RAM-drive for some files.
But, unfortunately it's practically not possible, due to the fact that the option to save the content of the RAM-drive upon shutdown isn't available. I have no idea why, but I realized it was never available on this Mac, it's an <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/mjungowski/pm7300" target="_blank">upgraded PowerMac 7300</a> running Mac OS 9.1

It is availably on my PowerBook running OS 8.6 though, did Apple take this out somewhen between 8.6 and 9.1? I would really appreciate any help, because I've experienced that running Mozilla from this RAM-drive really gives it an amazing boost.

Only certain computers support saving the RAM disk on shutdown.

Aaah, thanks a lot. That actually cleared things up, now I know it's just not possible.

'Jon's Ram Disk', or something like that, may work. Do a search.
