If you want to read up some more on problems with auto-ngotiation, here's a
couple of links:

Bennet, Michael J., "SysAdmins: Do You See Auto Negotiation as (AN) As

available online: http://www.lbl.gov/ITSD/CIS/compnews/2002/July/09.html

Cisco Inc. Application Note, "10/100 Mbps Auto-Negotiation", available
online: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/cc/pd/si/casi/prodlit/aneg_an.htm

That second link might be particularly appropriate if you're using a Cisco
