    Use a light http server (Boa, thttpd, squid+apache) to serve static files.

    I have apache installed on my Win2003 server, runs fine for me and my load is never over 1%

    Load is directly related to I/O Wait on the hard disks. Get faster disks / put them in a RAID array. Or, you can cluster cheaper machines to distribute the load and increase availability.
