Question Best 10/100 Mbps 24 port switch for full duplex with Linux

Hi All-

I'm about to purchase a 10/100 Mbps 24 port switch for networking Linux machines together using pretty standard NICs (3c59x, eepro100, etc).

Any thoughts on good bets or gotchas? I've browsed the web and seen some horror stories about certain NICs not working with certain switches and Linux drivers.

Would much appreciate any feedback.

Cisco is always good... For a bit less $$ though the Hewlett Packard Pro-Curve 2324 or 2524 can't be beat. The latter is SNMP managable, supports VLANs, etc.. Both have a *lifetime* overnight _replacement_ warranty as well!
