One trick is to write a simple block device driver which gives access to
the slow RAM as a kind of RAM disk, then use it as a swap partition. ISTR
there was a patch floating around years ago for those crappy Pentium
motherboards (like mine) which only cache the first 64MB of RAM- it let
you use the lower 64MB in preference to the high memory.
