It seems to me that, if you can spare the uplink port on the 5500, you may want to use that. Then, taking advantage of STP, connect the 2948Gs to each other using the remaining gig interfaces. One of the interfaces will be in BLOCKING state (preventing a loop), but if any one of the connections in the triangle are lost, that interface will move to FORWARDING state and you will not have lost an entire switch worth of nodes from your network. Just a thought.
