Go on...

This has been done  before  with  NetBSD  some  time  ago  on  MPC8xx
systems; see the hints in the README.

You might also want to search the freebsd-hackers archives; some
Aditya Godbole seems to be working on a FreeBSD port, see the
"Ramdisk support" thread on

Also, I know that Rafal Jaworowski has some patches in his queue.

Best regards,
