WS-X6248-RJ-45 is for the Sup2 engine (hence the "2" in the WS-Xn2nn-RJ-45). Is this a new purchase? If so, please contact your auhtorized Cisco reseller/vendor and see if you can come to an exchange agreement.

Hope this helps.

It's not necessary to upgrade your supervisor to get this up and running. The problem is that the WS-CAC-3000W Power supply is not supported in 6.x CatOS software. The minimum CatOS to run this power supply is 7.5(1).

Your supervisor only has 64MB of DRAM, so while you can upgrade to 7.5(1), you can't go much higher than that. Check the DRAM requirements in the same document:
