I am running a summer 2000 iMac DV400 with 256 MB of physical RAM, without virtual memory on, and using MacOS 9.2.1. I have Explorer 5.1 set up with its cache in a 20MB RAM disk. I have heard, and it makes sense to me, that doing so will help pages draw faster, etc.
It sounds to me as if, when I load a new page or even one I visit frequently, IE is accessing my hard drive to do so. I can hear it working.
But with virtual memory off and a RAM disk, WHY is this happening? Is there another cache somewhere that is not in the RAM disk?
Thanks in advance for your help.
