Let me start off by saying, i'm a newb to Linux, and i'm trying a dual boot Sys between WinXP and Mandrake 9.1
They way my network is set up, i have a small problem, the cabling i'm using things and reports as 100mb, but only supports 10.
I think it's a problem from being self crimped by a friend, but i've lived with it for quite a while by just decalring my nics to use it as a 10 full duplex in windows, and went about my way.
My problem is, i can't find where to do something similair in linux, i tried something in ifconfig but i didn't get very far...
in the mean time i can move my computer to another cable, that actually supports 100mb and i'm fine, or boot in to winXP, i'd just like to be able to toggle easier.
If i can get net access I think i'll like linux, but till then i'm very frustrated at it right now.
