How can I tell, from the output?  I could set my MTU back to 296 and

I have no win systems (unlike Matthias), but we were using WWW, ftp,
telnet, rcp/scp etc. quite happily on all our AmigaOS/NetBSD systems
with the PPP MTU at 296 bytes.  The _only_ problem we noticed was
the e-mail thing.  Even ping with large packet sizes (1000 bytes)
worked just fine.
