I will have a look at these threads.

I also tried mii-diag but my NIC is too old and does not support
mii. I can use ne2k-pci-diag and get the info "Full Duplex Mode"

The ne2k-pci module has an option full_duplex=1 to enable FD but no
one to disable it. And the documentation says that HD cannot be
forced if the EEPROM is configured for FD Mode. 

Perhaps I should think about reconfiguring the EEPROM, but how?
Probably you need MS-DOS and DOS drivers for that which I don't
