Chasd: Since someone has been able to get Apache to run, why not enable WebDAV and use that ? You can enable WebDAV by uncommenting the config file line that loads the dav_module, and also the line that adds mod_dav.c. Then you need to set up Directives that create an alias and enable WebDAV, like this

Uh, unless I'm really confused, WebDav is not at all the same thing as Internet Sharing. Internet Sharing would enable the Apple TV to share its Ethernet connection to wireless clients, or vice versa, as a bridge from wireless to Ethernet.
