Only use prefork MPM (worker is for Win32, AFAIK).

If you set ServerLimit to 251, that's the limit.
Set ServerLimit and MaxClients to the same value.
(Larger than 250)
And take a couple of minutes to study the apache documentation. It's  
actually quite good and tranlated into many languages...

BUT: what your server is being able to handle also depends on what you  
actually serve (PHP/JSP/Servelets/Perl/whatever!

This is usually not a problem that is easily described and solved in  
two sentences.
