connecting SG300-10P to another SG300-10P

please forgive the newbie question but trying to upgrade/expand my network beyond the simple linksys switch i currently use. 

what is the proper way to connect a second SG300-10P to the system?

current configuration is:

cable modem to Cisco Router RV042G.  Router port 1 to SG300-10P port G9 (the switch is located in another room)

from the SG300-10P i have ethernet cables (Cat 5) running throughout the building

in another room, i would like to add another SG300-10P.  do i connect from the ethernet jack in that room to port G1-G8 or do i connect to the G9 link port?

thanks

Hi Lee, you may interconnect on any port you like. I would recommend to disable POE on each interconnecting port between the switches though.

thank you. 

in general, should POE be disabled on any port not requiring it or does it not matter?

Hi Lee, it generally doesn't matter. The reason it matters interconnecting these switches is because the POE is designed to work with older Cisco POE devices and the connection will detect a valid resistance and attempt to supply power to the switch which in turn may give adverse affects.
