Forget it... just figured it out!

Took me two days, and when I have sent this message, and got back
to my FBSD box to look around, found the solution (and reason why only
256 fdescs)!

Hate when this happens!!!

Howdy squiders.

I'm posting this Q here since most probably you have played with it :).

I have just installed FreeBSD 2.1.6R to my machine, and I was wandering
if there is a way to safely increase number of available file descriptors. Currently
"configure" gives me max. of 256.

Thanx in advance,
