Personally I use ethtool these days. It's included in most distro's.

ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full
ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex half

Thanks for the info, but what I really need is the syntax for the eth_set command.  I believe it to be "eth_set eth0 100 f" but I'm looking for confirmation.

Here is the syntax.

Usage: eth_set <interface> [<10h|10f|100h|100f|1000h|1000f|autoneg>]
