Create a batch file that starts CT. At the start of the batch file, copy
your CTY.DAT and MASTER.DTA files to the RAM drive.  Also set an
environment variable to point there:

So the whole batch file looks something like:

copy C:\ct9\cty.dat G:\
copy C:\ct9\master.dta G:\
copy C:\ct9\cthlp G:\

set CTPATH=G:\
c:\ct9\ct %1 %2 %3 %4

(where G:\ is the RAM drive)

Then when CT accesses the .DTA file, it will pull it from the RAM drive and
not the disk.
