> How To Create Ramdisk?

I placed Postboot.img into /Extra/ and see good messages:
Enabling ramdisk /Extra/Postboot.img

Added memory device md0/rmd0 (02000000/0A000000) at 00DCA000 for 0014C000

And I see in system devices /dev/md0 and /dev/rmd0.
Now the question. What to do with the devices?
I can't mount it.
bash-3.2# mount /dev/md0 /Volumes/MD
/dev/md0 on /Volumes/MD: Incorrect super block.

While the img (really ISO) is mountable.

On the other hand I can create ramdisk by the command
diskutil erasevolume HFS+ "ramdisk" `hdiutil attach -nomount ram://1165430`
and it works.

Why not mount_hfs? Just mount doesn't work for partitions, for example.
