Is this possible in Ubuntu yet? I would like to add a 2 gig SD card to increase my RAM, as opposed to going out and buying more RAM for my EEEPC. I know Vista can, and anything it can do, we can do better if I remember correctly.

Flash memory has a very limited lifespan... I'd not want to use it as RAM because it would fail in short order.

One can use flash memory as a pseudo hard drive, but the fewer writes to it, the longer the memory will last.
