I think your best option is to go to the cisco site, find the
MIB files you can use for the 2900 series and look for the appropriate
vendor-specific entry.  I'm not sure this is available on the 29xx
but for instance on the 5500 it is possible to find the index for
a specific port on a specific module.  Chances are something similar
is possible for the 2900 (or any other decent switch).

Visit the faq site for a link to cisco.
