    Back in the "old days" of DOS, you could loadhigh and allocate some of your precious memory to a RAM drive where you would load your top program; can this be done in Windows 7 and if so, is there noticeable improvement?

    No, you can't. Windows memory management is a world away from the DOS days. Not only does it address much more RAM (even in the 32-bit version) it is much more adept at manipulating memory according to your usage.
