If you want to set the maximum request size, e.g. to define the maximum size for file uploads, you can use the way described in this post:
http://developers.de/blogs/nadine_storandt/archive/2009/04/24/moss-set-max-upload-size-on-iis-7.aspx (thanks to Nadine)
This command line tool just adds a new node to the web.config file of the target application. This node is added to the <system.webServer> section:
3: <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="52428800" />
The value of the maxAllowedContentLength attribute is the number of bytes for the request.
If you want to allow 50 MB file upload this means 1024 x 1024 x 50 = 52428800
