Hi,

I think you mean lighttpd.  lighttpd is probably the best out there.  I have tried Abyss too, http://www.aprelium.com/abyssws/download.php.  They are basically very small footprint and very fast Web servers.

TinyWeb from Ritlabs? Not sure it works on Linux though.

I used thttpd. It has better performance against apache (for static content).
Here are some comparison graphs: http://www.zeuscat.com/andrew/work/aprbench/

thttpd is available from here http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/
Under extreme load it's much faster then apache.
