I would like to use my opensuse 10.2 system on a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum
board with a Hitachi SATA 160 GB HDS722516VLSA80 hard disk mostly
without the hd running, i.e. I imagine copying the files needed for my
daily work at the beginning of a session to a ram disk and then working
from there. At the end of such a script the hd will be turned off. But
... I do not know how to accomplish this turning off. So for hints as
detailled as possible as to how to turn off the hd in a script I would
be very grateful.

Why not invest in a solid state drive?
As you are using a ramdrive when running, a solid state drive would be
perfect. No sound, almost no heat.
