forcing NIC's to full_duplex.

I have a suspision that some latency problems I'm seeing on my cluster
are due to the NIC's not autodetecting correctly the switches settings.
Usually I have to add an 'options eth0 full_duplex=1' to the
/etc/conf.modules file to force this issue whenever I have a linux box
that needs to be at 100/full.
I am booting the nodes off of a local HDD. Is there a way to force the
nodes to do this?
