Can 4 (or more) switches toggle a light?

I'm fairly familiar with 3 and 4-way light switch configurations, but I was wondering if there was some [easy & cheap] way to control (flip a switch) a single light from 4 or more locations.

Oops, lol, now after reading a few threads down, I see that is possible & I merely need to do a bit more research.

However, if anyone's feeling ambitious, I don't mind being spoon-fed the directions on how to make a 4-switch light.

If you know how to make 3 switches operate a light (two 3ways and one 4way), Then add 4ways to your hearts content in the same way you added the first 4 way switch.

You can control a light from a hundred locations with two 3-way switches and 98 4-way switches. There are many web sites that explain 4-way switches. Here's one. Here's another.

Whoops, hehe, I guess I didn't understand 4-way switches fairly well. Anyway, thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
