SQL Server Agent Job History

I have changed the following setting in SQL Server 2000:
Right click SQL Server Agent and go to properties/Job System and
deselected limit size of job history log. I want to keep all job
histories in msdb indefinitely.

Is there a way to leave this setting on, but configure how much history
shows when you right click an individual job and go to its job history?
In other words, I want to keep all of the job history in msdb, but
only want maybe the last 10 or so to be displayed under right click
job/job history.

Thanks.

You could hack sp_help_jobhistory, but I certainly would not recommend it.
But that's also the only option.
