How do I set up a firewall with minimal disk access?

Hi all,

I'm hoping to use an old laptop for a dialup firewall.  I'd like to leave it
always on as part of the network, but I don't want it to have the HD running
all the time.  If possible, I'd like it to work almost completely without
the drive.

How could I do this?
