design a network

I have a question, i have been asked to design a network for XYZ Corporation.  The network administrator has asked for my opinion on which routing protocol should be used.  This enterprise network has over 50 routers connecting multiple sites.  i need to detail several routing protocols and their advantages / disadvantages.  and to provide a detailed solution so the administrator is more knowledgeable on the solution.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

wow...sound like a homework question.  You have RIP, RIPv2, OSPF, and for cisco proprietary protocols you can get IGRP and EIGRP.  You should really learn them before making a recommendation.  Its really not hard once you go thru each one.  RIP and IGRP are really old and almost never used anymore exept in very basic implimentations.  OSPF for a large network if not using cisco.  EIGRP for large network with cisco devices.  Details revealed with a little study time.
