Ramdisk on fixed disk: how?

I'm working with a bootable Linux floppy that uses a ramdisk to
mount as root. I'd like to be able to use the same technique on a system
that's booting of a fixed IDE disk. However, all my attempts have failed.
Rather than mount the ramdisk, the kernel just mounts the hard drive
partition. Is there a special setup procedure I need to follow, or is
ramdisk-off-harddisk not supported?
