In a 3Com SuperStack 3 Switch 4400 you can configure up to 4 trunk groups with up to 4 ports in each.

Also, you can make stack-wide trunks for additional resilience. For example, if you have two 4400 in a stack, you will make trunk to third switch with 2 ports connected to the first shitch in the stack and 2 ports connected to the second one.

Best regards.

Each port in a switch 4400 can be tagged or untagged. Switch considers trunk as a port so each trunk can be tagged or untugged.
