Connecting 2924 xl Switches

I am having great difficulty finding articles or information on how to connect two 2924 -xl catalyst switches together. Nothing fancy just two switches using two cross over cables. There are lots of info on connecting different types of switches but nothing I can find on just simply connecting two like switches.

Can someone tell me the procedure and the config on each to get this to work? I have tried everything and the ports flap and fail going up and down.

I am stumped.

Be sure to configure both ports for full duplex/100 Mbit.

I have two of these stacked. Set port 24 to 100M/Full duplex on both then plugged a cross cable in. Working for months now, no trouble.

It sounds like a spanning tree problem. On the ports you are using for the uplinks, you might want to disable spanning tree portfast.
