Ive got a large database (180G). I read about partitioning but im not willing to use 5.1.
The Index of the database is too big to fit into the key_buffer (myisam-table).

Can I expect a performanceboost by dividing the table into smaler peaces and merging them together?
As far as I can see. 5.1 with partitioning could reduce the lookup to one table.
Ok I cant expect this to happen with merge, but can I expect a better performance than on a large file?
