Good 100 Mbps switches

Just get a second switch instead of 5 modules. It's cheaper and has the
added benefit that you can put both power supplies (and of course the
modules) into one case to have redundant power. This gives you an 80-port
switch for ~3000$. 

We also have two Procurve 4000M and had pretty good results as well.

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.

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

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

Regards,

Anuradha
