Stacking SGE2010 Switches

I have recently purchased 6 48 port switches and need some guidance in getting these configured and setup for use. These will be the only switches in my corporate office and will all be on the same network. Should I stack them or set them up as stand alone switches? If I stack them I can only stack 192 ports so I would need 2 stacks. How do you connect the two stacks together? Is it simply linking them with a patch cable.

This is my thinking so correct me if I go astray.
These are brand new switches so I will power up one and let it become the master, I will connect port 48 of the master to port 24 of the next one and then power it on, I will then connect port 48 of the second switch to port 24 and port 48 to port 24 of the first switch and then power on the third switch. This should give me my first stack. I will then do the same procedure for the second stack. Once this is done, how do I connect the two stacks together?

I had already reviewed this article. The SGE2010 only has the capacity to link 192 ports. Once both stacks were configured I simply connect the two with a patch cable and everything works as it should.

The switches were configured and put in production before any comments were made.
