Problem with SQL 2005 Date Statement

Here is the Statement,
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[p_ST_TimeSheet_SelectByPersonAndDate]
      @p_PersonID int,
      @p_StartDate DateTime,
      @p_FinishDate DateTime
AS
SELECT TimeSheetID, TimesheetGUID, PersonID, PersonGUID, JobID, JobGUID, JobNumber, StartDateTime, FinishDateTime, Activity, Note,
      UpdatedDate, UpdatedBy, CreatedDate, CreatedBy, isDurationPeriod, isChargeable, IsPostedToJobSheet
FROM t_ST_TimeSheet
WHERE PersonID = @p_PersonID AND StartDateTime >= @p_StartDate AND FinishDateTime < @p_FinishDate

When I try to execute
p_ST_TimeSheet_SelectByPersonAndDate 3,'01/01/1700','07/08/2001'
I get the error
Msg 8114, Level 16, State 1, Procedure p_ST_TimeSheet_SelectByPersonAndDate, Line 0
Error converting data type varchar to datetime.
Any date year >1900 is fine.  But could someone tell me how to correct this SQL statement please?

The earliest date you can pass to a datetime is January 1, 1753.

I guess '01/01/1700' is out of range for datetime fields - min value is 01/01/1753!

If in SQL Server 2005 the minimum date is 1st January 1753, in SQL Server 2008 we have a new data type with minimum date 1st January 0001.
Also, check this article out on how to extend dates to include dataes less than 1753-01-01:
