comment Ramdisk size limit in OS X Mountain Lion?
Thanks, it works. Maybe one question more. Once the ram disk is created and populated with data, the diskimage-helper process in the Activity Monitor shows more or less the memory usage of ramdisk. Since I use ramdisk as temporary file location, the temporary files are regularly cleaned up. Why does the diskimage-helper however still show the maximal memory usage? Is there any way to "free" the memory hold by diskimage-helper without unmounting it?

comment create image of Mac OS X install DVD so that the installation is possible without DVD driver
I have tried. The image was built successfully and restored on disk without problem. However during the installation it did fail again due to some strange error (no explicit error message). Btw, my SL DVD is Ver. 10.6.3 2Z691-6634-A

........I useed isoBuster to make ISO image from SL DVD, and somehow it did not do it well. Without notice the failed image I used the ISO image (restored on a partition) to install SL. The installation process failed. Now I have a erased partition, a partition with failed SL DVD image and a broken DVD drive...........

I have an old macbook from 2006 and a Windows PC. I inserted SL DVD in Windows and use its "Remote Install" program, then booted MacBook with option key. Unfortunately MacBook did not recognize it. It seems only AIR and Mini can do this en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_Install_Mac_OS_X
