    Many database products let you spread a database over multiple files, in
    which case the 2GB limit isn't necessarily a problem. If you really
    want a single file larger than that, then for 2.2 you are limited to
    using a 64-bit platform such as Alpha or Sparc64. 2.4 will support
    larger files on ia32, too.
