If you have everything configured correctly, the gig interfaces should
come up with the 100baseT interfaces. I have one cluster with gig as the
sole interface for the private network, and I had no problems with that
whatsoever. Perhaps a stupid question, do you have "ONBOOT" in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth* set to 'yes'?
