For people that can't afford to replace their entire infrastructure,
$800 24-port unmanaged copper gigabit switches and $30 PCI copper gigabit
ethernet cards (with a semi-non-sucky Realtek chipset, unlike their
10/100 stuff) is a damn nice improvement over 100baseT.
Note: DELL NETWORK EQUIPMENT SUCKS. We replaced a managed Dell copper gig
switch with an unmanaged NetGear copper gig switch and ALL THE PROBLEMS WENT
