[svlug] Ram Disks in 2.4.x...

Perhaps I'm just unlucky with searching so far, but I'm trying to
find out how to setup a ramdisk on a 2.4.x box (laptop). Everything
I've found talks about initrd stuff, but what I want is a "normal"
My goal to create a 32MB (or so) ramdisk that I can use when my laptop
is on battery. Then I can spin down the hard disk and just work off
of /mnt/ramdisk (or whatever), tell emacs to auto-save there and so
on. Then, just before I shut down, I'll sync that with a directory on
the hard disk.
Can anyone point me at what I'm missing?
