Here you go:
ip link set eth0 mtu # <enter>
Where # is replace with the actuall MTU you desire.
You can then verify with an ifconfig.

Yes, this is true if you want to change the MTU setting on the fly...
but it won't stick (e.g. setting will go back to the previous setting if
you restart the server or network service). Also note (tdefreese) you
are replying to a rather old thread :)

To have it as a persistent setting, either use YaST's Network settings
tool or edit the /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-XXXX as mentioned by
others here.

Cheers,
Willem
