e100 speed duplex under 9.1

I found I couldn't use the e100_speed_duplex module parameter under SuSE 9.1
with my Intel NIC.

A recent posting on this list reported the same problem and a solution - the
ethtool utility. Indeed I found that the following commands got the NIC

ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off duplex full
rmmod e100; modprobe e100

sometimes it seems necessary to reload the kernel module twice before the
network starts working properly.

I have found that this needs to be run every time the computer is rebooted.
I could put these commands in the boot.local but that could delay/prevent
the startup of other services.

Also, this doesn't solve the problem of network based installations, where
these settings need to be activated prior to installing the operating

Any ideas?
