Drop to a shell on *nix and type 'man ping'. I'm running SuSE 8.2 and I 
found this option, which is also present in the ping on my OpenBSD box:

      -s packetsize
      Specifies  the number of data bytes to be sent.  The default is
      56, which translates into 64 ICMP data bytes when combined with
      the 8 bytes of ICMP header data.

You'll probably have issues if you aren't root.


this is what happened on windows ? use the modified cygwin tool for windows,
