Packet loss

Okay, it's time we finally buy a real switch. We're getting 20% packet-loss on our internal network through our two chained-together ghetto switches.

We discussed this two months ago and I decided at the time I agreed with ender's suggestion.

But now the question is.... where should I buy a Cisco 2924XL or a 3500XL? Ideally I'd like to drive over to the 24-hour Cisco store and go install it tonight but that isn't going to happen. So who do I order it from that has stuff in stock?

Also, now that we're using Kenny as a slave DB as its primary job, we're discovering that the FreeBSD drivers for the AMI MegaRAID card really suck compared to the Linux ones. I think we're going to put Linux on Kenny if we can't figure out why IO is shit under FreeBSD.
