Copy it to /dev/shm/ and point the image location there on the config? I don't see why it wouldn't work, but I don't think there is many reasons to run it completly from memory (sure, latency should be nice (dunno about the Xen overheard tho), but you cannot save the changes and the memory footprint is fairly big).

Does anyone know if it's possible to load an entire image into memory and
run it with no disk access? If so, how would you do it? (Is the question
just ridiculous?)
