are you paying for these links?
the more links you have from the same site the more diluted their value will get in my opinion.
if you have to pay the same for each link i would probably only get one link, if they are free i'd go for as many as you can get.
just my opinion

But I thing one link is ok. Because when you will get more than one links from one site then all links will show same ip address and search engine understand this.
So you will get value for only one link.Same ip link counted as one link. So it is same weather you are getting one link or 100 links.
And search engine may understand that you have done link exchnage and this is bad in the eyes of search engine.
So if it is for free then also you should not take more that one link. Maximum two is ok but more than that I will say not a good idea.
I hope this information will help you. God bless you.

I am from the school of thought that one link is better. A "sitewide" link is a sure indicator of a link exchange IMHO and I am sure (if they don't already) that G! and co would be keen to value one-off links within relevant content more highly.
Just one opinion of many. But logical nonetheless ;)

Or, you are buying advertising.

Let's say a site has 1000 inbound links.
That site only has only one outbound link, and it happens to be yours. Nice.
Let's say all the inbound links are to the homepage, but your link is on a subpage. Not so nice no matter what the PR is.
Let's say the site has ten sponsors, each with a link on every page. Now we are sharing one really good site with 10 other people. Going down hill.
Now the site is putting unqiue links on each page, and they end up having 500 outbound links. We are getting to the bottom now.
All this without mentioning related content.
Let's say most of PR of site is provided by only a few sites. Now we are reaching the bottom.

Yes, I also think one link is ok. But in case if your are going for it, atleast use different anchor text's for linking, which might help.

Hopefully it is not 'bad' since I have links to some sites in my sidebar that gets displayed with every page on my site. I don't want to be 'hurting' anyone elses ranking by this.

You can't hurt a site's rankings by linking to it - it would be an easy trick to hurt your competitor's ranking.
