"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.

Yes you can - See notes below

"Note: A Cisco 3750 switch can be stacked with any other model of Cisco 3750 switches. Catalyst 3750 switches that run Cisco IOS® Release 12.2(25)SEB are compatible with Cisco EtherSwitch service modules that run Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EZ. Catalyst 3750 switches and Cisco EtherSwitch service modules can be in the same switch stack. Within this switch stack, the Catalyst 3750 switch or the Cisco EtherSwitch service module can be the stack master."

Does this also mean that, two ports number switches (48 and 24 ports) doesn't matter for stack configuration.

Yes - That is correct.

If they have the same IOS image you can go ahead and connect stacking cable and configure switch stack
