How do I set a custom mtu size on a gigabit interface in 6513 catalyst ?

Hi,
I am trying to set the MTU of an interface in 6513 catalyst to 1600 instead of the default 1500. From within the interface , the command (config-if)#mtu ? and (config-if)#jumbo  is showing up as unrecognized command. The IOS version is Version 12.2(18)SXF4.
How do I set the mtu on individual interface ?

I'm running 12.2 33 with a 6509, and the 'mtu' command within an interface is valid. You may need to have enabled jumbo frames globally on the switch first before you can adjust the mtu to anything higher than 1500.
