Question about Cisco I/O Cards
I already have 2 of the same switches and want to connect a third. My 1st switch is cabled at port 24 to the 2nd switch at port 24. Where would I connect the 3 switch with the other two?
It does not have to be port 24 to port 24 - You just need to make sure that whatever port you use is configured the same way as port 24 - Example: Log into switch #2 and set port 23 with the same attributes as port 24. Also log into you new switch and make sure port 23 (or 24) is configured the same as those on switch #2. You can the cleanly go from switch #1 - port 24 to switch #2 - port 23 AND switch #2 port 24 to switch #3 port 23 - If you also configure switch #3 port 24 like the others you'll be ready for any additional expansion

Agreed and if you are using any vlans make sure you make that link between them a vlan trunk
