MySQL 5.1 is available from www.dotdeb.org
I use MySQL 5.0 (now also with Percona patches) in production for
several years without any problems (both 32bit and 64bit etch). I
don't see any reason for migrating to 5.1 now. Also for you the 5.0
should be sufficient (regarding the ability to fit all data in memory
- don't know about any further requirements).
