Another alternative, if you have board space is to combine
two or more higher value resistors to come *down* to the value
you want. I once ran up a simple Excel spreadsheet so you could
just type in the value(s) you had, the value you wanted, and it
would come up with the value you needed, combinations up to
4 resistors.
Anyone wants it, let me know - I could probably still find it,
or work it out again...
