Displaying a Switching Table

Is there an easy way to display a switching table? I need to map each port of our switches. Instead of tracing wires around using a cable testing device, I thought there may be a way to get MAC address information from the switch itself. We use HP Procurve 2626, HP Procurve 2724, HP J3202A, and D-Link DSH16 switches. Thanks for any help...

On a Nortel box (passport 8600) it's >show vlan info fdb-entry (vlanid).  It's probably something very similar.

for the 2600 series Procurve look in this llink. there is a section that tells you exactlly what you are asking for. I would think it would be similar on the other HP switches.

This has worked for me in the past.  I would use it and do a print screen to document it.  Your switch has to have SNMP enabled.
