Do you need to have 2000 simultaneous *open* connections, or do you 
simply need to serve 2000 users simultaneously visiting your web site?

If the former, I'd suggest using a threaded MPM. If you're worried about 
non thread safe PHP you can use fastcgi for PHP.

If the latter and if the single requests are beeing served fast, you 
could try lowering the keepalive timeout (or turn off keepalive) and see 
if that helps.
