Hi all, i have 4 vlans, 1 2 3 4.. and there is another vlan 5 which contains 3 servers in it, switch that i am using is 2950, now my objective is, when first requset comes from any vlan, it should be forwarded to Server1, second should be to Server2, third should be to Server3, then again to server1 like in a round robin fashion,

Is there any way to do it.

You should use a third party load balancer in between 2950 switch and servers. I really do not know how loadbalancing is possible in 2950 swicthes without 'another' loadbalancer. I believe it is not possible.

In 6500 series switches you have the facility of SLB (Server load balancing) where you define a particular 'sever-farm' and then incorporate loadbalancing.
