Good 100 Mbps switches

I've had very good results with the HP Procurve 4000M series...

It comes with 40 10/100Base-T ports for $1499 from many online stores, and
is expandable to 80 ports total.  The only downside is the 8-port modules
are rather expensive ($350 each) if you need to expand beyond 40 ports.

Subject: Good 100 Mbps switches

We are going to setup a beowulf cluster with 32 nodes using 100 Mbps

Please recommand good (and of course cheap) switches that can be used for
purpose (we need more than 32 ports).

A: What's on it, anything expensive?
Q: No, just Solitaire and MineSweeper for now, but the WINE is free.
