Clusterin Cisco switches to use a single IP

Scotty_Cisco mentioned:

"I may be wrong but you can manage multipule switches by adding them to a cluster anyway so the one IP address is a mute point you can cluster off of any port."

How?
Are there any other advantages?

If i plug one half of an etherchannel into each of two clustered 3550's will it work?
(i.e. gi0/1 &0/2 etherchannel from san switch going to gi0/1 & gi0/1 on two clustered 3550's)

Have a look and see what you think ... technically I believe you end up having to use multipule IP addresses but the management is through one.

Thanks
