System: NetBSD noon 1.4ZA NetBSD 1.4ZA (NOON-$Revision: 1.31 $) #6: Mon Jun 5 16:55:49 MEST 2000 feyrer@noon:/usr/cvs/src-current/sys/arch/i386/compile/NOON i386

	From my dialup network at home (which operates at MTU 300 usually),
	I need to use a bigger MTU to get to certain services. For Slashdot,
	I use:

	route change -mtu 1500

	Works fine! Now I don't know the exact IP# of google, and this
	want to set MTU 1500 for their whole /24:

	noon# route change 209.185.108/24 -mtu 1500
	route: bad value: 209.185.108/24
	OK, missing ".0", trying again:

	noon# route change -mtu 1500
	route: bad value:

	No go. :(

	See above.
