* When you source the shrc file, don't expect to see any output.  It just sets
some envvars.

* Look at the SPECWeb99 results page to see how some of the winning entries have
tuned the servers.  Also notice how many client boxes and how many/what kind of
NICs they are using. 

* The harder you drive the server, the more disk space you will need.  SPECWeb99
touches more files as you ramp up the number of concurrent connections.  There
is a formula here: 
Plus you need disk space for logs proportional to the load.

* I wouldn't be surprised if there are bugs or bottlenecks in mod_specweb99
itself, since it was only recently open sourced.  Please feed back any
info/patches to this list.  But you don't need mod_specweb99 if you are only
doing static content.
