    How large can a mysql table be in Linux/Unix? I've heard it can be up to 4 gig, but that Linux/Unix limits it to 2gigs?

    Is this true?

    The reason I ask is because I am building a mysql database that will most likely exceede these limitations. What errors are thrown when a table maxes out, and is there a way to test this scenario without accually maxing out a table?

    Thanks

    Thats priviledged information dave But is is a program that will be used by lots of people, and these people will be making lots of entries into the database. I'm not saying it will for sure exceede the limitations, but it does have the possibility and I want to be prepared.
