Daisy Chain Switches ??

Is there a limit on the number of switches that can be daisy – chained ?

I have (2) 4006 switches at the core of our LAN – we use 3548 XL switches in the closets which are trunked vis gigabit interfaces to the 2 4006 switches can I do the following

Core A – 3548 – 3548 – 3548 – 3548 – 3548 – Core B

Best practice is not to have Spanning tree diameter go beyond 7 switches. Make Core A and/or Core B your STP root switches.
