connecting cisco 3750g to 2960s via fiber

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We have a switch stack of 4 Cisco 3750G switches and I will be running about 200 ft of fiber  SFP MM Duplex from one of those switches(switch A) to a brand new Cisco 2960 (switch B).   I have never done anything like this before so I am very excited and a little nervous.  

Switch B is a managable switch but I don't want to manage it, I need it to be a dummy switch to pass through data or should I manage it will that give me faster access

Switch A is an internal switch that is not hooked up to the internet.

Can someone help me with this or point me to a place I can find more information about doing this type of connection.....
