Use Etherchannel to the 10/100 switch if you have capacity, or better yet use the uplink ports on the 10/100 (if any exist, you may need to get gbics for them) to increase the tunking capacity. You can have a maximum of 8 in a bundle giving you 8x100M in the channel. The thing to decide then is how you hash into the channel for your load balancing distribution. With the majority being on one side configure source MAC or source MAC/IP might be the best option for you. This will give you improvements to your desktops from the servers.
