It sounds like you are using activex in an entirely client side context - so AFAIK all there should be to it is putting the file somewhere under the web root and setting up the HTML in the same way as for IIS.

Put everything in a cab archive. Then put the cab archive somewhere on the Webserver (IIS/Apache or any other). Make sure that you can access it with your browser when you enter the URL.
Then edit the HTML and replace the codebase attribute of the <object> tag which contains your activex with the URL pointing to the cab archive.

The easiest way is to use WinACE. But you can also use Microsofts commandline tool cabarc. It is probably already installed otherwise you can dl it here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;310618

here is a link about ActiveX packing:
