I have a Cisco Catalyst 3500 switch; it's a 24-porter.  Those switches
have two GBIC (Giga-Bit Interface Connector) ports in them, and those
ports take either fiber Gig-E or copper Gig-E.  I happen to use fiber,
but copper works just fine, too.

BTW, those Cat 3500's make *great* switches for LTSP.  And yes, you
DEFINITELY want Gig-E on your server!

Do you GNU!?
