No, I don't think so...

But then it doesn't really need a howto.....

Add this line to /etc/fstab

none /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming tmpfs defaults 0 0

Then stop mailscanner and do this...

mount /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming

... then start MailScanner

Works for me on Mandrake 9 and Iguess it would work with pretty much any distro/kernel that supports tmpfs.  (so RH9 should be fine).
