ramdisk


i have been able to do the trivial task of creating a ramdisk by
mke2fs /dev/ram0
mount /dev/ram0 /mnt/ramdisk

It seems that linux buffers the i/o to this. Since the ramdisk is itself memory,
I would like to find a way to bypass the buffering and write directly to the ramdisk. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so how is it done?
Any help would be appreciated.
