[CentOS-mirror] DVD isos & apache in 32bit CentOS

is there some official (recomended) way how to handle DVD isos with
32bit (i386) CentOS (4.3). The included apache (2.0.52) does not allow 
to handle files over 2GB. I see two possibilities:

- offer httpd package compiled with large-files support
- suggest some light-weight HTTP daemon to redirect request for ISOs on
  (boa?) + maybe write some howto

merlin.fit.vutbr.cz does have DVD isos on disk, but cannot serve them,
that's bad...

I am going to implement the second approach but want to know if someone
had solved this yet before I start.

Thanks in advance.
