BTW, it's not really a matter of a limit imposed on you for upload, but rather a limit imposed on PHP uploads to ensure our scripts don't use too many shared resources.
With a standard FTP client you should be able to upload anything up to the limits of the filesystem - though you probably want to limit yourself to files that can be served by Apache (it's either 2GB or 4GB).
FYI, I use SFTP because it provides better security (encrypted passwords and data). Another FYI is if you want to provide web-based upload capability to your users they'll be able to upload bigger files if you use a Perl-based script.
