    On the first kit, The 2 x 2950's are fine, but although you could make do with the routers, i'd recommend to look at something a bit better than the 2500 series. You would need a couple of rj45 transceivers to connect a lan to the AUI ports on them, better just getting a cheap 2600 series. I prefer the 2621 as it has two fast ethernet ports.
    The 3620 shown also only has 10mb ethernet ports.

    Forget the second kit, it's useless.

    I'd recommend getting:
    2 x 2950 switches (3 if you can afford it).
    3 x 2600 series routers (preferably 2621's) - There are also the 2600xm series (extra memory) a bit more expensive but useful if going after the CCNP.
    On the routers try to get a WIC 1T or WIC 2T card for each.
