It seems that if you do the "ndd -set"s in /etc/rc2.d/S69inet you need to
specify which instance of the quad card and it is good to also turn the
other possibilities off, like so:
for i in 0 1 2 3; do
   ndd -set /dev/qfe instance $i
   ndd -set /dev/qfe adv_autoneg_cap 0
   ndd -set /dev/qfe adv_100T4_cap 0
   ndd -set /dev/qfe adv_100hdx_cap 0
   ndd -set /dev/qfe adv_10fdx_cap 0
   ndd -set /dev/qfe adv_10hdx_cap 0
   ndd -set /dev/qfe adv_100fdx_cap 1

The above routine to set all 4 instances is thanks to Mark Neill.
Others suggested making the change in /etc/system as follows:
set qfe:qfe_adv_autoneg_cap=0
set qfe:qfe_adv_100T4_cap=0
set qfe:qfe_adv_100fdx_cap=1
set qfe:qfe_adv_100hdx_cap=0
set qfe:qfe_adv_10fdx_cap=0
set qfe:qfe_adv_10hdx_cap=0

Many thanks to all who responded. This is a great group!
