Need more info on this "2GB SSD"

At first glance, I would say - not gonna happen.

It appears to be an early model SSD, probably for industrial/commercial use. Not necessarily designed as a cache drive.

I doubt you could make it work like that.

Yeah I am drawing the same conclusion... Any idea how to do it with a 64 gb SATA II Crucial SSD?

A 64GB SATA II into a cache drive? I wouldn't.

A 64 is right on the edge of usable for a main boot drive. Just use it like that.
Be mindful of the free space, though.
