Hi Jim,
For my usb setup, I just put in the below two line into fstab:

# update-manager cannot see any space in /tmp when ramfs used
tmpfs        /tmp        tmpfs    size=256M,mode=1777    0    0
ramfs        /var/log    ramfs    mode=755        0    0

Then any program using /tmp gets the benefit of fast ram-based access.
I can then add specific links to /tmp, like /var/cache/apt/archives, so my
downloads for updates don't need to write to the usb flash memory.
