One-Way Hash Problem

I have two processes that listen for broadcast messages. When a given message hits the processes, a unique identity gets assigned to it. Since I want both copies of the message to have the same identity, I am thinking about using a one-way hash to computer the identity.
The problem I have when using the MD5CryptoServiceProvider class is that the hash value is 32 bits long. How can I get something that is smaller (lets say in the 10-16 bit area)?
