How do I enable a fiber ring loop using a HP A5500 fiber switch with 2 HP Procurve switches?

I keep getting an excessive broadcasts error and the loop starts going haywire.

The ring looks like this:  HP A5500 ---> HP Procurve ---> HP Procurve ---> HP A5500

How do I enable this redundant loop? Are there any other options?

Thanks

Simplest would be to enable spanning tree protocol.  I also noticed that the HP A5500 supports stacking via its 10G ports, but I'm not sure if that feature is available on the Procurve switches, so I doubt that you will be able to use that...
