what i would do is as follows:

1) for backup purposes, move the current bootflash file(s), mz.120-7.XE1, boot-mz.121-3a.E7.bin & ds-ms.121-3a.E7.bin to the PCMCIA card. ( or tftp or other location with enough space)(you may not need to delete the boot loader file if you have enough space)

2) delete the files from bootflash and "squeeze" the flash to permenantly remove those files and get your space back.

3) copy new file to bootflash: via tftp or whatever means you're using.

4) set the 'boot system flash bootflash:' command if you'd like. as the IOS would be the only file in bootflash: it should load with/without the boot system command.
