I have several 6500's with sup2-2GE with MSFC2. they currently are running hybrid CatOS and IOS. I want to convert to just IOS. In order to do that I need to increase the memory from 32MB flash to 64MB flash. If I use a PCMCIA card in the slot with the new IOS, can I boot the IOS from the PCMCIA card?

You would have to look at the release notes of the IOS code version you want to run to see what the minimum requirements are.

Yes you should be able as long as you point your boot statement there . Follow the upgrade instructions for catos conversion to the letter.

the current switches are running 32MB of Flash and 128MB of DRAM. I know the PC card will cover the Flash, but will I need to upgrade the DRAM also?
