prepare for warp speed

I just got a new 10/100 mbps full duplex 8-port ethernet switch to replace this 10 mbps hub piece of crap. ah yea'.

for the curious, it's a D-Link DSS-8+ ... really heavy and solid feeling, which is a lot more than I can say for most the hubs these days.

update: win2k immediately detected the change and switched to 100 mbps mode (there's a 100 mbps linksys router upstream) and i stopped & started the networking on my linux box ... but how can I tell the linux box is running at 100 mbps now?

another update: i can tell my linux box is at 100 now (copying large files between my computers is incredibly fast now) but I'd still like to know how to determine the speed it's running at ... I looked around in /proc/net/ but didn't seen it.
