Question on stacking of Cisco switches

Hi All

One of the floors in one of our offices is going to expand greatly, and will require another 48 port switch to be stacked with the existing one (existing is 2950, we'll get a 2960 new).

The 2950 has two GBIC 1000SX interfaces that connect it with the floors above and below, the rest are 100 FE ports. What's the best way to stack a 2950/2960 if there are no more gigabit interfaces left on one of them? Any special x-over cables that we can use?
