He is using Linux 2.0... It is possible to increase the number of open
files, but it aint easy, right off, unless you look here...

The standard number allowed is 256.

(libc is broken in older versions of linux (including RedHat 3.0.3)
You can fix it by putting the OPEN_MAX check before the getdtablesize()
check _Duane_ can you change this?)

If you want to know how to modify settings so that you can open more

(Ok, so there is nothing else on there, really, but if anyone has
html format stuff that they think is worthwhile, and not the standard
LDP stuff, give me a shout)
