Re: help: 2.4.0 kernel and /dev/shm

To quote Phil Brutsche <pbrutsch@tux.creighton.edu>,
# Don't worry about /var/shm vs /dev/shm - it's just a mountpoint and
# work fine either way.

Just out of curiosity, what does a 'shm' filesystem accomplish? I peek
through what kernel docs I'm familiar with didn't explain much :( I
don't even know what it's *supposed* to do :)
