Turning on Full Duplex

I'm having troubles getting full duplex to work. I have a Kingston
KNE100TX card with the Digital 21140-AF chip.

I added the following line to my conf.module:

options tulip options=14 debug=1

dmesg gives the following information:

Linux version 2.0.36
tulip.c:v0.90f 12/17/98 becker@cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov
eth1: Digital DS21140 Tulip at 0x6400, 00 c0 f0 31 37 bd, IRQ 12.
eth1:  EEPROM default media type Autosense.
eth1:  Index #0 - Media MII (#11) described by a 21140 MII PHY (1)
eth1:  MII transceiver #1 config 3000 status 7829 advertising 01e1.
eth1:  Advertising 0101 on PHY 1, previously advertising 01e1.
eth1: Using user-specified media MII 100baseTx-FD.

The light on the card that says FDX does not come on. The hub says it
supports full duplex. What am I missing?
