Help me extend my LAN, please!

I'm extending an wired ethernet LAN to a nearby house. I'm planning to connect a 50m patch cable to the existing bridge router, run it through an existing underground pipe to the other house where it would meet a switch and serve internet via two shorter patch cables (25m?) to two laptops in that house. Can anyone see a problem with this setup? [more inside]

Do switches use the fastest route available between computers?

I have 4 Gigabit switches for my network and one 10/100 router. Can/should I hook each switch up to the router and then also plug each switch into each other switch to improve internet performance while still maintaining Gigabit on my LAN?

Extending my network.

I have a Linksys 4 port Cable/DSL router, and two computers. I am having a LAN party tonight with one or two more machines, but I can't move the router to another room, where my friends will be. I'm not too worried about lost packets, am I able to use a 100TX hub (intel) while keeping the internet gateway and be able to see all my computers?
