MySQL 3.23 supports tables of up to 8,000 GB on the underlying file system
but 3.22 only goes up to 2GB.  I found that RedHat 6.1 supports files larger
than 2GB on Alphas but not on Intels.  As far as the number of rows, I've
got indexed tables with 250 million plus rows.  Look in the MySQL
documentation for more specific information.

What file sizes can Solaris support?
How about Linux - Red Hat 6.1/6.2?
