We're using Grand Junction's hubs, who have been since bought out by
cisco.  There are basically two different ways you can go on these;
either the standalone FastHub 1xx, which comes in 4, 8, 12, and 16 port
sizes, or you can get the Catalyst 2800 or 2802 10BaseT switches and put 
up to two one, four, or eight port modules in them.  In either case, the
100BaseT ports are not switched.

We've been quite pleased with them, and have only had one firmware problem 
that has since been fixed.  (Basically, the Catalyst 28xx boxes would
infinitely reset themselves between December 27th and December 31st)
