Hi Manual,

Couple of things: if you are not using transactions by default (though, you can set that in my.cnf). Using transaction can be sometimes faster for example for 10 INSERTS: needs to flush once, instead of 10 times after each statement.
Multiple tablespace. Well, depends on your harddrive. If you put all the tablespaces on the same disk, you will not gain much. If you span it over sperated disks, then you will gain some.

Maybe you can split up the big table in smaller tables and use MERGE engine?
If you are not going to use transactions, then why not stay with MyISAM? InnoDB also uses a bit more memory, might also be important.
