Generate random number

i'm trying to fix a function i had working fine under windows, but in linux doesn't work

int RandomNum() { 
int chosen;
chosen=int(1000*rand()/(RAND_MAX+1.0));
return chosen; 
}

This function under windows (mangos compiled with vs2010) generates a random number between 0-1000, but under linux it returns always 0.

I also have tried this modification with no luck:

srand((unsigned)time(0));
int RandomNum() { 
int floor = 0, ceiling = 1000, range = (ceiling - floor);
int chosen = floor + int((range * rand()) / (RAND_MAX + 1.0));
return chosen;
}

I have tried several things but i don't achieve to get it working, could you help me?

Thanks!
