Isn't that defined in /etc/login.defs? Grep for "UID_MIN".

but I thought login.defs defines if user having minimal UID can login.
To create user with UIDs, you must edit /etc/adduser.conf and set properly:
Code:
# FIRST_SYSTEM_[GU]ID to LAST_SYSTEM_[GU]ID inclusive is the range for UIDs
# for dynamically allocated administrative and system accounts/groups.
FIRST_SYSTEM_UID=100
LAST_SYSTEM_UID=999
FIRST_SYSTEM_GID=100
LAST_SYSTEM_GID=999

# FIRST_[GU]ID to LAST_[GU]ID inclusive is the range of UIDs of dynamically
# allocated user accounts/groups.
FIRST_UID=1000
LAST_UID=29999
FIRST_GID=1000
LAST_GID=29999
