Catalyst 3550 stack and etherchannel

I wonder if it is possiable to organize gigabit etherchannel from stack of two catalyst 3550 to server. The problem is to connect server's 2-port NIC to both switches, not just one, and have loadbalancing over 2 links while staying connected in case one of the switches goes down. If not, is it possiable with 3750 switches.

Hi,

This is not possible on 3550's as they do not use true stacking feature on that and moreover both the switches have different configs and they do not get Sync. I think it is possible in case of 3750's, though havnt tried myself.
