Does the driver control the led on my switch?????

(My cards just have a "link" led, and a "100Mbps" led)

I'm not going back to the hub after upgrading just to see the
changeover messages. I'm confident that we're running full-duplex now
on the switch and that that's OK with the switch. I was just wondering
wether this confirmed my suspicion that there was something wrong with
the /duplexicity/.
