How to Access RAM as a page file

Can anyone actually help me out.
I wanted to know if there is any method to acess the RAM as a page file using any of the system calls or otherwise. Am interested in doing a program to save the contents of the RAM on to the disk and then otehr way round, during say restore. Can anyone suggest the best way to do it?
looking forward

You have to compile ramdisk support into your kernel. This will give you several character devices that can access like physical drives. I think...
