Ramdisk size, howto increase limit (Kernel parameters)

Hi everyone,

I wanted to create ramdisks but its size is limited to 16megs only. I wanted to increase it and found that it can be increased via kernel parameters while booting.

Can we do the same while the machine is running?
May be through some fine tunable parameter in /proc/sys/kernel ?

Thanks in advance,
