Cisco 100mbit switches suck at autonegotiation.  If you have a Cisco
switch that's managed, set the port 100 Mbit full, and then hard code
your eth device to 100 Mbit full.  As others have said, ethtool will be
remarkably enlightening as to what's happening.  If this is a production
machine, you really should wait until traffic is at its lowest point as
traffic gets unstable for a small bit.
