I have the list of supported cipher suites in the Eldos help in front of me. Is there any way to find the corresponding key strengths of each? Some are fairly obvious, like RSA AES128 SHA, but others, not so much. like RSA RC4 MD5, and typing that in Google produces a wealth of useless information. I am trying to write something that allows only 128 bit and stronger ciphers. Thanks.

I believe, the RFC would be the best answer. Page 61.

Thanks. For your RC4 ciphers, is that RC4 40 or 128?

They are named in the same way as in RFC. So if the cipher suite has EXPORT in it's name, this means shorter key length (you can find EXPORT cipher suites in the table on the page 61 of the RFC if you pay special attention to the key word).
