Can't change MTU size



What on earth am I doing wrong?

[root osprey ~]# ifconfig eth0 mtu 1492
SIOCSIFMTU: Invalid argument
[root osprey ~]# ifconfig eth0 inet mtu 1492
SIOCSIFMTU: Invalid argument

I tried stopping eth0 (ifconfig eth0 down), then executing the mtu size
change, but it didn't help.

I also tried adding MTU=1492
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, but on network restart I
get the same SIOCSIFMTU error.

Background info:

Abit AV8 motherboard with Via Velocity 6122 Gbit onboard nic.

Autonegotiation is on.
