Hey everyone!

I'm wanting a new, enterprise-grade switch for my house to replace the  
little measly D-Link I have upstairs currently. I'd like it to be a  
hoss, though, and support expansion in a rack-mountable form-factor.  
I'd also like for it to support several media types via pluggable  
expansion modules. Something like the higher end Cisco Catalyst series.  
Also, it should be affordable to a College student. :) Oh, and 100BT is  
ok, but I'd like to also be able to add 100FX and 1000 on Copper as  
well, even if to only a couple of ports.

I'm sure one of you out there know just what I need, or am I dreaming  
too big?
