[cvsnt] ram disk?

On our Linux servers (800 MHz, 2Gb Ram, Raid 5 SCSI drives), we used ram
disks for the CVS temp space to dramatically improve performance. This
was years ago, when the fastest boxes were 800 MHz, but we were able to
take them up to 2 Gb Ram and use a 1.5 Gb ram disk. We're currently
moving to Windows Server 2003 and CvsNT on these same servers, and I'm
wondering how CvsNT uses memory vs temp space? I'd like to know if a
ram disk is a good idea, or does CvsNT strongly prefer more memory and
make less use of the temp space?
