View as plain text  
I have an InnoDB data file that is currently 10GB in size, without using RAID.  I don't
hae any MyISAM tables that size, so I can't say whether it will work for those.

A bit more investigation shows that since my linux box is already
able to create files larger than 4GB with ext3, this must be a MySQL
limitation and the RAID option is my only choice now.  Am I correct
here?
