routing table

I am using kernel 2.4.19.The max limit on routing tables is 255(2 of them are reserved).I am using iproute2 utility for managing routes.
I want increase the max limit of routing tables to 1000(min.).Is there some solution for it? Or some patch available? Or it cannot be achieved.
sorry for taking your time.

thanks in advance,

I would think this kind of setting is accesiible through the /proc filesystem. There's /proc/sys/net/ipv4/route and a file called max_size in that directory. For me that value is 8192 (and even 65536 on another machine). Maybe that's the place to look.

The /proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/max-size file has the value 131072.
But still the same max. limit on routing table exists.
