    yes the switch does advertuse FC :

    willy@wtap:~$ dmesg|grep eth0
    eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BMC5705mA3) rev 3003 PHY(5705)] (PCI:33MHz:32-bit) 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet 00:0d:9d:91:ef:24
    eth0: RXcsums[1] LinkChgREG[0] MIirq[0] ASF[0] WireSpeed[0] TSOcap[1]
    eth0: dma_rwctrl[763f0000] dma_mask[64-bit]
    tg3: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.
    tg3: eth0: Flow control is on for TX and on for RX.

    I know ;-) but not seeing the problem, I started to suspect that the other
    switch was a little bit ill and tried to reproduce some problems I might
    incidently have been encountering on it.
