You're routing on the 4108gl? If not, 3750 might not be the best option.

A 3750 stack of two 3750V2-48TSs and a 3750G-24TS-1U might meet your requirement. This would provide 96 10/100 ports, 24 10/100/1000 ports and 12 SFP ports.

The question I am interested in is do you want a Layer 2 or a Layer 3 switch?

The only Layer 2/3 stackable switch is the 3750 while for Layer 2 alone the 2755 is a candidate.

Cisco Catalyst 2975 Switch with LAN Base Software

One of the key features:

48 10/100/1000 PoE ports and 4 Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks

High-speed stacking for up to nine switches and support for cross-stack EtherChannel

Unified stack management to simplify management of the network access layer

Hope this helps.
