G'Day !

Thank you for all your responses.  In summary it sounds like the cheapest 
and easiest way is to use (2) 8 port switches that are independent of each 
other.  (ie not uplinked).

Do they have to be switches or will a generic non-switching hub work ?

cheers,
Jim Parker

G'Day !

If I have 8 nodes each with (2) 100Mb Ethernet cards, and I want to use 
channel bonding.  Can I use (1) 16 port switch, or do I need (2) 8 ports ? 
 If I use the (2) 8 ports, do the switches need to be connected to each 
other or are they isolated from each other ?

cheers,
Jim Parker
