I think i will need to buy bootrom, else it doesnt recognise 32MB flash? Sounds rubblish,

Cisco 2600 Series Boot Rom MEM2620-32FSBOOT

Enable your Cisco 2620 and 2621 to recongize 32MB of Flash memory capacity

Part Number: MEM2620-32FSBOOT

Bootrom version 12.1(3r)T2

Currently im running -

System Bootstrap, Version 11.3(2)XA4, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Hi Sylvester,

This is one of the biggest pain to a 2600 router. You can't upgrade the bootstrap easily and require additional purchase and downtime. This was identified and starting from the 2691 onwards (3725/3745) you can now upgrade the bootstrap using software.
