Do you *have* to have the gigabit slots?  The previous generation (C2912
and C2924) are dirt cheap.  Just make sure you get a 29xx-XL-A or
29xx-XL-EN and not a 29xx-XL ;)

(the non-A/non-EN - the difference is the software load, they both have
the same amount of flash & dram - can't take the "Enterprise" firmware
which provides the VLAN functions)
