Can anyone comment on the DES 5600 or DES 6000 switches from D-Link
(for 100bT)?  We're considering building a Beowulf of around 128
nodes, using either a FNN (six 64 node neighborhoods via 5600s) or
just one switch (the DES 6000).

Useful links:

Other suggestions for switches are welcome as well.  We're in the
"thinking seriously about it" phase, and hope to start settling down
on real hardware candidates.
