ibdata1 is close to disk size


I am running MySQL 4.0.13 with my-medium.cnf (attached) on a Solaris 8, 4x450
Mhz, 4gb RAM. All my tables are InnoDB. Currently my ibdata1 is 1.8 gb. I have
about 1 gig space left on the same partition. Also it is excruciatingly slow
now. How do prevent the ibdata1 from filling up the disk partition ? How do I
increase the speed on my MySQL? Please help.

port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock
key_buffer = 16M
max_allowed_packet = 1M
table_cache = 64
sort_buffer_size = 512K
net_buffer_length = 8K
myisam_sort_buffer_size = 8M
query_cache_size = 16M
query_cache_limit = 8M

server-id = 1

# Uncomment the following if you are using InnoDB tables
#innodb_data_home_dir = /usr/local/mysql/var/
#innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
#innodb_log_group_home_dir = /usr/local/mysql/var/
#innodb_log_arch_dir = /usr/local/mysql/var/
# You can set .._buffer_pool_size up to 50 - 80 %
# of RAM but beware of setting memory usage too high
#innodb_buffer_pool_size = 16M
#innodb_additional_mem_pool_size = 2M
# Set .._log_file_size to 25 % of buffer pool size
#innodb_log_file_size = 5M
#innodb_log_buffer_size = 8M
#innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 1
#innodb_lock_wait_timeout = 50

( I had to comment the innodb to stop crashing )

max_allowed_packet = 16M


key_buffer = 20M
sort_buffer_size = 20M
read_buffer = 2M
write_buffer = 2M

key_buffer = 20M
sort_buffer_size = 20M
read_buffer = 2M
write_buffer = 2M


Please help
