Will that significantly increase the performance?

Would someone be kind and explain the process of even formatting the flash disk. I dont know what to do with it since I cant access it in my server nor reinstall anything on it in the manager page.

Thanks you very much guys

It would be amazing if that flash disk could've been used to help the RAM though

Hi,
I just added a 2Gb flash disk to my server, and wanted to install debian on it, but the install manager doesnt give me the option to do so. Only option is to partition the actual HD. I'd like to put the OS on a flash and the rest on the HD.
Can someone explain to me the steps to do it?

Thank you guys.
