this parameter specifies the maximum no of oracle users that you can add to the password file.

 entries - maximum number of distinct DBA

Clark,

orapwd is the password creation utility for remote authentication.  The password using this mechanism is stored externally (under $ORACLE_HOME/dbs in unix).  B'cos the authenticated users can start/stop the database, it has to be outside the database (so that it is available even before the database is open).  Here's how you will create the privileged user authentication using orapwd.

> In OS prompt, create new passwordfile with the command:
  orapwd file=orapw<sid> password=<sys's password> entries=15

> Add in the init<sid>.ora file the following:
  REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE=exclusive
> shutdown and restart the database
> start svrmgrl and enter:
  grant sysdba to <dbauser>
  or grant sysoper to <dbauser>
> You can query the contents in the password file (who all are granted sysdba/sysoper privileges) by querying the view v$pwfile_users.

Hope this helps..

Just to add on arun04's reply parameter ---'entries' is the number of Oracle DB user's with sysdba previleges who can start and shutdown the Database,connect internal to change some parameters but not usual db users as  arun04 puts it you can have many DB users but only those privileged users (sysdba) appear in the pwdfile.
Cheers.
