Apache 2.2.2 has been released. Maybe someone can pack this version for 
mirror site administrators? This version supports the "Large File 
Support" feature to handle files larger than 2GB. 

In order to provide uses to download DVD-iso files, we use lighttpd 
(http://www.lighttpd.net/) as the HTTP server. It has "Large File 
Support " support.
If your site is based on CentOS, you can get the lighttpd package 
through DAG repository (http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/).
