Ok, I give this a shot even though I haven't touched a linux box in
years. This information is directly realative to OpenBSD but might work
To initialize your interface in 100baseTX full-duplex mode you might
use the ifconfig command like this:
#ifconfig <interface> media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
Ofcourse if you want it to do this everythime the system starts you
would would put it in a rc script somewhere. In OpenBSD that would
be /etc/rc.local and in linux it is probably similar.
This advise may be null and void if your device driver does not fully
support your network interface card becuase in this case it may not be
possible to initialize your interface in the desired mode at all.
As a disclaimer, I have to say that many linux distrubution have
alternate methods of doing things and that this advise may not apply to
your brand of linux.
