I have read the manual.  I have used InnoDB for small (50MB) databases. I
have NOT managed high-capacity InnoDB databases.  If you want more
reassurance than what the manual says, talk to someone else.

It seems odd to me that RH9 wouldn't have large file support enabled.  
Perhaps the mysqld binary you are using just isn't compiled to take
advantage of it.  Maybe you should install from source and the configure
script will recognize that LFS is available?

There is an interesting user comment regarding 4.0.12 at

This syntax sure doesn't look like the examples in the manual.
