I am pretty sure that I am not L2TP (my gateway is a linux server with
fedora core 2 that is always connected over an ADSL line).  This MTU
change is needed for Remote Desktop to work but it seems to cause
problems copying large files to my linux server.

Since overridemtu does nothing on 2.6 kernel, I am looking for another
way of specifying an MTU value instead of having to change the network
interface MTU value on my Windows XP machine.
