I just have 2 curous questions since I am trying to understand networking and connectivity.  If I have 20 Workstations / 1 Server / 1 BW Printer. How should I connect everythng?  I am thinking maybe using a few switches because we will just say it is for gameing development or something.  Next, if I needed to be able to run tests without affecting the rest of the network, how could I do that?

Get a 24Port layer 2 Managed switch and plug everything into that.  If you need to run tests on some machines without affecting the rest of the network just add the relevant PC's to a VLAN via the switch's webpage or console interface.  A good quality, cheapish switch is the Netgear FS726T.

        If you have a server you should choose a switch which has a gigabit port. Hp 2626 would be a good choixe. It is also maangeble that you can disable enable ports to disconnect related network from its web based interface.
