you can wire a circuit to have 5 or more switches if you like using 2 3-way switches and as many 4-way switches in between as you like.

View the 3 sites bellow, it explains the wiring for 3-way and 4-way circuits, more switches just add more 4-way switches between the 2 3-way switches...

http://www.handymanwire.com/articles/3wayswitch.html
http://www.howstuffworks.com/three-way1.htm

The last 2 sites are mostly on 3-way circuits, and the first site explains 4-way & 3-way circuits. You can add as many 4-way switches as you like as long as there is a 3 -way switch at the each end as indicated on the diagram on this site.
