I'm creating an Apache media server and need some help tuning the httpd.conf

Arbuckle2 used Ask the Experts™
I'm setting up a media server running Apache on an Large Amazon EC2 instance. What should the Server-Pool Size parameters be on the server to maximize performance. I am receiving between 100 - 300 requests per second and want to make sure these parameters are setup correctly.

Any other performance tweaks in the httpd.conf would be much appreciated.
