Here's the syntax to add below the alias eth1
options e1000 Duplex=2,2 Speed=100,100
This will lock both of them to 100 full.

Thanks very much,

In the documentation for the e1000 at Intel's site it states that if you
have your switch hard coded and the driver at auto (which is default) it
will come up at 100 half.  Just set your switch to auto and it will all
work
correctly.

Hi Phil, Thanks for responding.

I am running the 2.4.18-10smp kernel, and version 4.3.2 of the e1000
driver. 

Our switch is hard set to 100 full, which I have been told might be the
cause of the adapter being brought up at 100 half. This should be easy
enough to fix with an entry to modules.conf forcing the adapter to be
brought up at 100 full, but if this is the case then does that mean that
procfg is just giving out incorrect information when it queries the
duplex state? 

Thanks Much,
   Anthony

What does /proc/net/PRO_LAN_Adapters say? Which kernel version are you
using? Intel's website claims to require version 4.2 or higher of the
e1000 driver. Redhat 7.3 didn't ship with this, but recent errata
kernels have it.
