What module would i need?  The only gigabit modules that i've seen for 
the 5000/5500 are fiber, not copper.  Although, i'll bet i would need to 
upgrade my supervisor card to do it either one.  I wouldn't mind a 
performance hit from the backplane as long as it can do gigabit between 
the gigabit ports on the module.
