We have multiple PE1650 servers that are not forcing full duplex on the
second NIC.  They are running redhat 6.2, custom 2.4.18 kernel, e1000-4.3.2
drivers compiled around 2.4.18 source tree.  
In /etc/conf.modules are the following:
alias eth0 e1000
alias eth1 e1000
options e1000 Duplex=2 Speed=100
After rebooting dmesg reports the following:
Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - version 4.3.2
Copyright (c) 1999-2002 Intel Corporation.
eth0: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
Forcing to 100 Mbps Full Duplex
Speed, AutoNeg and MDI-X specifications are incompatible. Setting MDI-X to a
compatible value.
eth1: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
e1000: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex
e1000: eth1 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Half Duplex
Thanks in advance,
