Subject: questions regarding incremental mode

Hello I would like to ask what parameters to use in John to generate 
passwords for attack which resemble

I want the number of generated passwords is for example 5% of total 
passwords combinations for example

This method is used by following products:
My goal is that I want to try something like incremental attack but I 
want to specify other parameters to

prevent this attack from testing all 26^6.
Because standard incremental when I select for example minlen and 
maxlen=5 it will test all 26^5, but I want

to testonly fragment of this and then automaticaly terminate it.
Which parameter should I use?
Nice day
Jan Krekan
