In order for the MTU change to be presistent across reboot, you must update configuration files.  

The files for the ethernet adpaters are located here on SuSE 9.

   /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*

For example if you are referring to the first ethernet port it would be etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0

Add the following:

MTU='1400'

This page has a pretty good one page summay for Suse network configuration.

Will this result in a permanent change, or until the next reboot, like ip link set dev eth0 mtu 1400?
