What is the platform, 6500 or 4500?

what is the file system of the active sup, bootflash:, disk0: or bootdisk:

You can do a dir slavebootflash: for example to confirm you have access to the standby sup and then you can copy the IOS from the active to the standby, do a write mem and reload the standby sup to it loads the same IOS as the active + the config file
