Hi there --
 
I have the following configuration.....
 
Dell -- PowerEdge 650; OS: RedHat 9.0; Kernel: vmlinuz-2.4.20-30.9
Network cards: Intel gigE cards 
 
The requirement is to operate the gigE network cards at 100Mbps
Full-Duplex 
with "no" auto-negotiation.
 
By default -- the NICs are getting configured 1000Mbps with
auto-negotiation.
 
I did install the rpm package "e100-2.3.30-rh9-2.4.20-16.9.i386.rpm"
from Intel
to have the 100Mbps functionality....but the NICs are failing to operate
at 100Mbps-full.
Any suggestions?
 
thanks!
