Does anyone know how to get whole-duplex mode on the sis900 network card? Ive got SuSE 8.2 and the 10mbps is rather limiting, Id like 100mbps!...

    full duplex means data can travel both ways at the same time, eg 20Mbps/200Mbps, goign by the rest of yoru post i dotn think this is actually the problem, rather that the card is only workign at 10/20 instead of 100/200. First check that /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (or wherever suse puts network configs) doesnt specify to use a slower speed, then check that u are usign the right driver and that the card even supports it.

    Not least, make sure that the other side (be it a computer on cross-over or a hub/switch) is capable of 100 mbps.
