I'm using ubuntu 7.10 about to upgrade to 8.04

in my.conf:
# * InnoDB
# InnoDB is enabled by default with a 10MB datafile in /var/lib/mysql/.
# Read the manual for more InnoDB related options. There are many!
# You might want to disable InnoDB to shrink the mysqld process by circa

It's a MySQL storage format.

Don't start the server with --skip-innodb and don't put the skip-innodb
option in the MySQL option file (/etc/my.cnf) (and don't do any of the
other things some crazy distro might do to disable InnoDB storage on
your MySQL server).

In other words, you're probably going to have to tell us what distro
you're using so someone using that same distro can tell you how to undo
what the distro did.
