Just 1000 answers when trying to query Active Directory

Hello!
I am using a linked server to query Active directory and
SELECT * FROM OpenQuery(ADSI,'<LDAP://skolhem1/DC=skola,DC=sundsvall,dc=local>;(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=user));name, adspath;subtree') where name='be89mape'
does work when I ask for one of the first 1000 users but not if I ask for any of the others. What I want to do is to compare the OU that is stored in the SQL-server with the OU the user actually belongs to in AD so that is why I don't want to give the ou in the LDAP-string.
I hope you understand the question...

With Windows 2000 you are limited to a maximum of 1000.  You will have to get additional values using a range.

OK. There is no way around that limit? With Windows 2003 is it different?
