I am running an email server on Mandrake 9 linux.  Every 3 months, I enter in a batch of new users.  Today I hit the 10,000 user mark, at which point Webmin on Mandrake throws an error saying that the UID must be less than or equal to 10000.  Even if I am using a kernel before 2.4, I should still have nearly 65 thousand uid available.  
What do I need to do to create a user with a uid greater than 10,000?

I think that's just a restriction in webmin. So a mod of the code seems in order.
