Uploading large files to Sharepoint Services 3.0

Hi, I'm trying to upload large files, around 200 MB to a Sharepoint services 3.0 site.  I'm currently running it on Server 2008.  I have applied this fix, and have changed the max upload size limit in central administration
Which seemed to work on files that are around 100 MB, but once I get higher like the 200 MB range, it starts to fail out and I'm thinking it's because of file size.  

I have changed the timeout limits in IIS as well for my site, it times out only after a few minutes, whenever I have the limit set to around 45 mins or so.  Can anyone shed any light on this?

    Maybe this will help with the IIS timeout?

    Also see here for some additional settings you may want to tweak:

    Very helpful, thank you!!  It ended up being the chunk size.  I had already adjusted everything else.  I ran into this issue a while ago and had no idea the chunk size could be changed until your posting.  Once again thank you for your help!
