How can I search the active directory and get more than 100 results using the Address Book?

Currently, if I search for "m", I get a message informing me that "there are too many entries in the directory service..."

How are you currently searching AD? Through a script? Through the Admin tool? Some other way? – EBGreen Feb 17 '12 at 18:39
@EBGreen Through the address book. Start>All Programs>Accessories>Address Book>Find People>Look in:Active Directory. – wizlog Feb 17 '12 at 19:02
Not sure where that comes from actually. I have office including Outlook installed but I don't have that app. Do you know where it came from? – EBGreen Feb 17 '12 at 20:47
@EBGreen Address Book comes with Windows XP – wizlog Feb 17 '12 at 21:54
