Is the trunking options on an HP switch (HP2524 or 25xx) the same as the trunking on a Nortel switch (460/470)

They are not 100% the same, but you may be able to get them to work together,  Both support LACP (Link Aggregation Control Protocol), but the Nortel also supports MLT.  Your only oprion is to give it a try, I have seen no documentation on integrating them.
