speed and duplex settings

I found these statement in a document discussing auto-negotiation. Are these statements true?

•Full-duplex will work only if a host is connected directly to a switch or other device, with no repeaters or hubs in-between.

•If auto-negotiation is enabled on only one side of the link, it will always default to half-duplex, regardless of what the other side of the link is forced to.

•If one side of a link is forced to full duplex and the other is set to auto-negotiation, a duplex mismatch will occur.

•Any network connected via an AUI port (with an external transceiver, for example) can run only in 10Mb half-duplex mode.

I believe that these statements are true.

Auto negotiation is good when both sides are configured to negotiate. When one side does not negotiate the other side should not try to negotiate.
