Comment (by tmitchell):

 It is also noted that Drupal may not be handling 404 requests nicely...
 since there are many dead links from old site structure, it is recommended
 we modify .htaccess to handle things better:
  * as per http://drupal.org/node/56773

 and as clousau on IRC mentions:
 clouseau: also, this was added to .htaccess in Drupal 5, but will work
 with 4.7:
 [08:44am] clouseau: # Requires mod_expires to be enabled.
 [08:44am] clouseau: <IfModule mod_expires.c>
 [08:44am] clouseau:   # Enable expirations.
 [08:44am] clouseau:   ExpiresActive On
 [08:44am] clouseau:   # Cache all files for 2 weeks after access (A).
 [08:44am] clouseau:   ExpiresDefault A1209600
 [08:44am] clouseau:   # Do not cache dynamically generated pages.
 [08:44am] clouseau:   ExpiresByType text/html A1
 [08:44am] clouseau: </IfModule>
 [08:44am] clouseau: that helps graphically-heavy sites more
  * Upgrading to Drupal 5 will help in some areas too
