I'd like to eliminate anything unnecessary from my Ubuntu Server box (on a Compact Flash IDE drive) and set it up to boot into RAM. I've seen ways of getting a live CD to do this and seen other distributions that are designed to do this, but since I'm familiar with Ubuntu, I'd like to be able to get rid of my swap space and make the existing installation boot to RAM. Can anyone help me with this?

Opps, I don't know why it was so hard to find this before, but I'll try the stuff I found here:

I believe that is how Google runs their servers.
