There are many solutions for this *problem* but the first step, for me
is, where are the real bottlenecks:

1.) application
2.) bandwith (as Chris wrot)
3.) MaxClients to low
4.) some timeouts to high
5.) *internal* Kommunication to slow (DB <=> APPL,APPL <=> WEBServer,
WEBServer <=> Client, ... )
6.) .....

For the solutions:

1.) HW-Loadbalancer
2.) SW-Loadbalancer
3.) ...
