I'm looking to buy equipment for my home lab to start working on the
IE!!

I'm thinking this one would work well:

In all honesty (and my opinion), it is not worth the cost of the ATM switch.
The amount of ATM material on the lab does not justify the cost of the
switch, ATM cards for the switch and ATM cards for your routers.  In my
opinion, just use an on-line rack rental for the ATM part of the lab.  You
should be able to do this about a week or so before your lab and be fine.

In my lab what i have done to emulate the routes coming from that "atm"
network is use a back-to-back frame-relay connection between two routers.
Servers the purpose just fine.

Yes it is, and this model would work fine except for the power supply that
you would have to change unless you have access to 48V DC power, but you
should be able to find power supplies cheap. The ATM interfaces cards for
your routers and the routers that will support them might break your budget.
Make sure you look into this before you buy the LS 1010.
