    connect the computers to any of the 10/100 ports marked 1 - 22 on either of the two switches
    connect the two switches via the 10/100/1000 port with each other
    connect the server to one of the 10/100/1000 port
    connect the internet connection, if you have one, to the last 10/100/1000 port
