Running Windows XP from system RAM.

I've heard that benefits in speed can be had by running windows in RAM. I have 512mb installed, is this enough? How do I go about setting up Windows to load into RAM at startup?

Reading the bumph for HyperOS which includes this application called Hyperdrive that apparently does what we want, it says at least 750 MB is needed !

Can one set up Windows to do this anyway, without any other software needed ?

Noone else has responded since you wrote this in Feb. Odd isn't it, as it seems like a good thing to be doing. Or maybe home users don't normally have enough RAM ?

Anyway I hope my response opens some gates.
