Have a look at www.firewall.cx/switches.php for a basic introduction to the problem.
To prevent broadcast storms you basically want to break your network up into smaller broadcast domains. There are several ways of doing this such as implementing VLANs

VLANs are certainly the way to go. Not only do you end up breaking your broadcast domains, but you also increase your security level by creating separate logical & 'physical' network segments.

As the Bishop suggested, please visit our VLAN section which covers this topic extensively.
