[R] date format

I'm trying to convert a vector containing dates in character format ("dd/mm/yy"): mdy.date (from date package) seems to be able to do that, but it returns to me a vector containing julian dates... but negative!
for example:

16/12/03 is converted into -20470

it is because R recognizes year ../03 as 1903, instead of 2003, but how can I do to solve this problem? (of course, I could add "36525" to each data, but it's not very elegant)
