IBM HTTP server unable to process large form data

I am using IBM Websphere 4.0 with IBM Http Server 1.3.19.
Everything works fine except that when I pass large amounts of form data from the browser to the HTTP Server, it is unable to capture the whole data.
I found this by looking at the access_log file of the HTTP Server. Due to incomplete data, it does not find the request method type & throws an error of Illegal Argument Exception on the screen. In the log it prints "Invalid Method Request".
I have the above configuration installed in 3 places and all the places are showing a similar behaviour.
Please Help !!

1. your display name

2. What's this to do with Apache or Tomcat if you're using WebSphere and IBM HttpServer?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
