I'm responding to Steffen, but it really applies to you all.  Thanks!  
Using VLANs worked perfectly.  We ended up buying some quad gig NICs, 
but still had one or two zones that were without connection.  As they 
were QA or expected to be low bandwidth servers, I used VLANs an had 
them share a connection with the global. A quick re-config on the switch 
port, and all was well.

Thanks again for the suggestions!
