Unfortunately not.  Without purchasing Apple's AppleShare Server software, you will be limited to the 10 user maximum provided from personal file sharing.

The limit is on connected users, regardless of who they are logged in as.

Check out <http://appleshare.apple.com/appleshareip/index.html> for information on the AppleShare Server.

On a separate note, you could try using Personal NetFinder included in Personal Web Sharing instead (it's included in OS8 and later).  It allows people to connect to your machine with their web browser and do file sharing activities.

I hope this answers your questions.
