Increase number of open files

Kernel used: 2.4.2-2 Redhat 7.0

>From time to time I have to close some Windows on my system to perform
some other tasks, like printing a document.

There are no messages on the log files, but my understanding is
a maximum number of concurrent files need to be modified.

Is there some parameters in /proc to set up without the need to
reconfigure the kernel ?
