We have alot os servers and switches enough to fill our core switch without even using etherchannels and all the company can afford is 48 ports.  To try and work around this we have a 2960G switch and a high end 4948 series switch i wanted to separate the servers and switches into these two switches example put all servers in one switch and switches in one switch which will now give me way more space and the ability to perform etherchannels because we really need the redundancy and bandwidth.  My question is what do i put in the high end 4948 layer 3 switch (Switches or servers) and what do i put in the Layer 2 gigabit switches this is just until we get another 4948.  I was thinking switches plugged into the 4948 due to traffic and on the other hand does it really make a difference since these two switches are in the core.
