configuration for network speed - Linux / Unix Administration

I did it a while back, but I forgot which file I should edit. I need to change one of my Sun Solaris2.6 system to 100Mbps/half-duplx. Would anyone give me a pointer? Thanks....

    Start with "ndd /dev/hme0 \?" to see what settings are available then
    read the
    man page for both ndd and hme to see what numbers mean.

    Once you get the two commands to force it to those two values, you will
    want to put them in a script in /etc/rc1.d or similar so it survives
    reboots.

    Are you *certain* you want half duplex? That's for hubs not for most
    switches.
    it you're forcing your switch to half duplex, okay, just sure to triple
    check
    on the switch side.

    There are a couple of useful doents on sunsolve that describe this
    in detail. Go to http://sunsolve.sun.com/ and search for the
    following:

    doentid:16144 doentid:2605

    Doent 16144 describes how to set full or half duplex using either
    ndd, /etc/system, or /kernel/drv/[hme,qfe].conf files. Doent 2605
    is an older version with a little less info.

    I agree. Also, the order of the ndd commands is important. Sun says:
    "Perform adv_autoneg_cap 0 last!"

    Make sure you do the ndd changes from the console in case you lose your
    network connection when you disable autoneg.
