(1) Your hard drive life is going to be limited by total hours of
operation and time since you bought it -- it will not be appreciably
extended by foregoing disk accesses while allowing the disk to spin
(2) It should work in a very straightforward way with a ram disk -- but I
doubt if you'll notice any difference -- the way it works on my 486/40
laptop is virtually instantaneous -- the access routine seems to start
the disk lookup upon the first key stroke

No clue on this
