Intel EtherExpress - full duplex?

Whilst trying to sort out a networking problem, I noticed the
/public/rfc# ifconfig fxp0
fxp0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.0.1 netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast 192.168.255.255
media: autoselect (100baseTX) status: active
supported media: autoselect 100baseTX <full-duplex> 100baseTX
10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 10baseT/UTP
This seems to suggest that my ethernet card is not running full-duplex.
Is this the case? Is there any reason why it isn't?
All my machines are conncted to a 3COM OfficeConnect 4*100BaseT hub,
could this be the problem? There's nothing in the manual regarding
full- or half- duplex operation.
