Hi
get 2 hp 24 port switches with 2 gb ports on each switch or some thing simular. you dont need more than 10/100 to the pc`s but 1 or 2 gb links between the switches is a good idea, the second link is just for redundancy.

good luck

    You are going to need something more than a couple switchs to connect the two buildings. The reason is that the maximum run for CAT5 cable is 100 meters (328 feet). Realistically you should not go over 250 feet. I would recomend that you find a local consultant to discuss your needs. There are alot of options that need to be covered that is not conducive to this enviroment. Your question is akin to asking someone how to design a house. If you need any recommendations on finding a consultant let me know.
