As you would mount normally, add the corresponding entries to /etc/fstab
and your rc* scripts will mount them

What is the unsued memory you are refering to? The one used by initrd?
In which case doing a umount /initrd should do, though using blockdev
command to flushbuffers on /dev/ram0 is advised.
