Hi all,

We are about to build a 19 bi-athlon/Tyan Tiger/Scyld cluster 
for academic research in the field of genetic programming, and 
large neural networks.

We'd like to use an Extreme Networks Summit 48 ethernet switch 
-> http://www.extremenetworks.com/products/datasheets/summit24.asp
connecting (highly recommended here recently :) Netgear FA310TX NICs 
-> http://www.netgear.com/product_view.asp?xrp=1&yrp=1&zrp=4 

Here come the questions :
* has anyone experienced channel bonding on that switch ?
* any Gigabit NIC recommandation for the master node ?
* is it possible/necessary to channel bond Gigabit interfaces ?

Thanks in advance for your help !!
