No.  You cannot just switch to InnoDB.

There are many sites that dwarf yours.  Carefully examine the limits of 
your current performance before doing anything.  Very few performance 
issues scale with the number of bugs.  If you are interested in 
improving database performance, upgrade to MySQL 4.0 and consider 
upgrading to Bugzilla 2.18 and using a shadow database.
