When looking for information on Windows, this URL is your friend
To answer your question:
On NT/2000 (Q120620,
Create a REG_DWORD called 'MTU' with the value of the MTU.
Create a REG_DWORD called 'RouterMTU' with the MTU for non local packets.
On 9x/Me (Q158474
Create a REG_SZ (string) called 'MaxMTU' with the value of the MTU.
Naturally, the resultant MTU for both the above systems will be the minimum
of the discoverd MTU (using path MTU discovery) and the MTU specified.
