Problems with network and SusE 9.1

I have a NIC installed on my system, but because of sertain network conditions I have to set the speed to 10Mbps half duplex manually. In the past, when I was with SuSE9.0, I did it with "mii-tool -F 10baseT-HD eth0" , but now it just says "SIOCGMII on eth0 failed", or something like that. Does anyone have any ideas how to set the speed manually, without using mii-tool? Btw, SuSE 9.0 is with kernel 2.4.22, while SuSE 9.1 is with kernel 2.6.4. And please excuse my horrible english.

Perhaps you could try using "ethtool":
man ethtool
