Limiting Speed on cisco network

What is the easiest way to limit internet speed in a cisco switch from below 10mb/s?
I have cisco 2940 switches and i want to prevent users from getting a full 10mb.  It seems that 10 is as low as i can set the port speed. There is no lan talk only internet.

It looks like you can use class-maps to separate traffic per interface or per VLAN.

Check out this link for the details.

you will need to configure QoS  in order to limit the speed of traffic.

here is a link from cisco on setting up QoS.

will this work on a per port basis or per service level. Like i want if i have a 10mb/10mb internet connection and i want to divide that amoungst 5 ports not allowing anyone to get more then 2/2 at any given time.
I didnt think OOS could work on a per port basis.
