I added the command in the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local and it is connected after reboot.

[dglent at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/rc.d/rc.local 
# Provides: rc.local
# X-Mandriva-Compat-Mode
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Short-Description: Local initialization script
# Description: This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
#              You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
#              want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

touch /var/lock/subsys/local
ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off

I dont know if it is important but it has the word Mandriva this file
