Hi Rick,
I thought you have to dedicate 70-80% of available RAM not a total RAM.
Saying if I have 2 gig of RAM on my exclusively innodb box, and I 
dedicate 1.4Gig to innodb pool, my 64-bit linux machine will start 
swapping heavily.
If I set it to 800-900M, it just fine and I have like 100M of RAM left 
for some occasional process. I did try it.
