no sure i presume just flash sup 720 purchased as default card with no external flash or memory upgrade, its just i have 4 systems some of them refer to supbootdisk and some sup-bootflash, i understand the external disk but a little confused by the other two options so you think it might be compact flash as apposed to normal flash ?

Originally, the Sup720 used a DIMM-based flash memory stick for sup-bootflash.

These were capped at about 64MB, I think.

Once Compact Flash started to get cheap, cisco swapped the Flash dimm out with an adapter that took a CF card. This CF adapter is referred to as sup-bootdisk.

A box that has a sup-bootdisk can refer to that same CF card via sup-bootflash.

I don't think a box with bootflash has the ROM necessary to know about the sup-bootdisk, so there's no real forwards compatibility.

disk0: and disk1: are the physical CF slots located on the front of the supervisor.
