Well thanks to all those that replied - to many to mention!

In a nutshell I did this whilst the server was up:
ndd -set /dev/ce instance 0
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_1000fdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_1000hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_100fdx_cap 1
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_100hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_10fdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_10hdx_cap 0
ndd -set /dev/ce adv_autoneg_cap 0

Which forced 100MB/FDX on ce0

I also use this --> from
Sun's Bigadmin site to give NIC details.

I have also added "adv_autoneg_cap=0 adv_1000fdx_cap=0 adv_1000hdx_cap=0
adv_100fdx_cap=1 adv_100hdx_cap=0 adv_10fdx_cap=0 adv_10hdx_cap=0;" to
"/platform/sun4u/kernel/drv/ce.conf". So it should force ALL "ce"
interfaces to 100MB/FDX upon reboot - BUT I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS.

Some of the links provided to me are as follows and well worth a read:

Thanks - Julian.
