This wouldn't do anything to the system connecting to it except cause a lot of 
collisions and errors.  The only way to get things to work is both sides have 
to be locked down at FD or one side locked down at HD and the other AUTO.  In 
order for AUTO to work properly for Duplexing it has to be able to negotiate 
with the other side.  If the other side is not negotiating then the auto side 
will default to Half.  Speed is a different story as the system can detect at 
what speed the other side is running at but it cannot detect the duplexing.
