I think you may be referring to material that predates Gemini's release
under GPL.

The distributions available at do not include code for the
Gemini table type.  The MySQL+Gemini distributions at do.

The distributions from both sites also support ISAM, MyISAM, BDB, and
InnoDB table types.  You may have to compile from source with the appropriate
configure flags to enable support for the table types you want to evaluate.
