Errr ... Your issue is a very broad subject with an equally broad topic.  Can you be more specific?  What is your 6500 Sup Engine?  Layer 2?  Layer 3?  What modules?

You know what?  I think you need to engage consultant here.  I can think of at least a dozen ways this can go bottoms-up.

I would agree with Leolaohoo. Unless you know what all of the configuration on your existing CatOS switch does, I would bring in a consultant to review the situation to ensure not only a successful upgrade but to make sure you get the best network performance out of your purchase.

If one gets a consultant earlier, the consultant will have time to study the network and make proper recommendations.  If the consultant is called when the problem is occuring the risks of getting it right is lower plus the rate you have to pay is higher.   Or one can just go "cheap-o".
