argh. i was being misled by the error message suggesting that the
engine name "innodb" was being mangled with some unprintable
characters. turns out that "show engines;" doesn't even list innodb
as one of the engines so i clearly neglected to activate it. i was
running from memory off of my previous ubuntu box where i'd set it up.
so i'll just follow along here, i think.
or maybe i'll just have a nap, then wake up and come to the ubuntu
hour and torture someone *there*.
