just open <Tomcat-install-dir>/conf/server.xml . You will a Connector element in that xml file [its around 76 line]. In that element, there is a attribute called maxThreads. Try changing that.

I saw that option in tomcat 5.5.4. I dont know about tomcat 5.0.28 [ mostly it will be same in this also].

Hope this helps

thanks - you've both  been very helpful - any idea where I can find more info on the threading parameters - there seem to be several, and I have an unusual application which uses many persistent connections. I'm considering non-blocking NIO as an alternative.
