Hardware solution:

Software solution (Solaris 9 12/03 or better) see

or if not Solaris 9, maybe -

Thanks to:

and to Rich Teer who reminded me about:

"If RAM gets in short supply, the kernel will happily page out
stuff on the RAM disk to swap (unless the pages are locked in
memory).  Given enough RAM, something in a VM backed /tmp will
not be paged to disk, and hence will be equivelent to a RAM disk."

It is true that using a RAM DISK may NOT be the best solution or the best usage 
of real memory.  Your mileage may vary.
