hm. our koha works on 2 servers (soon on 3)
BG - Pentium 4 3 Ghz 1MB/800 Mhz, 1.5GB mem - KOHA cgi, mails, www pages, samba
and others services
KOHA - Pentium 4 2,6 Ghz, 1.5 GB mem, SCSI 4x36GB - mysql databases

soon :
TerminalServer - Dual-Core Xeon 5110 1.60GHz 4MB 1066MHz x2, 2GB mem,
SAS 73GBx2 - database replication, low balancing KOHA<->MySQL,
and workers terminals (about 15)

Connection: BG<->KOHA<->TerminalServer (100Mbits)
soon exclusive direct: BG<->KOHA<->TerminalServer (1Gbits)

Borrowers: 20,000
Records: 9000main catalogue (soon after conversion 200,000),
other databases (Teology, CIDE, etc.): 7000+32000+13212+500+5000+300 :)

no problemos:)

We using PLD, OpenSUSE, Debian, Gentoo:)

GSL> Are there any MySQL size limits that I would need to worry about?

hm. we using Koha 2.2.4 with strong modification.
You can have problems with original Koha (experience with 2.2.4!)
sooner or later with this size of yours database in usage (not mysql problem!).
