Speeding up configuration of CSS

I find configuring the CSS to be a pretty slow process in that everything is contextual. And it is always asking you to confirm your actions. For example

"add service foo"

..results in Create service <foo>, [y/n]

Is there a way to turn off these annoying speed bumps? When you have hundreds of services and content rules to configure this is ridiculous. IOS doesn't make you do that when you say want to configure an interface or a route map.

Also - pasting configuration into the CSS often fails because it gets overloaded. Is there a way to make the CSS more amenable to receiving pasted config(from say Windows putty ssh to its console port)?

And lastly - can you just create a flat file configuration outside of the CSS and copy it to the CSS?

Any tips on speeding the configuration are most appreciated.

you can copy your tftp config to the startup config, and then copy your startup to your running.

Great - thanks much for the expert mode. I will be using that.

Regarding tftp and ftp - do you mean just create and modify the config in its entirety offline and ftp it to config dir? Then how do you put the new config into effect?

Thank-you for both of the tips. I will try them both out in the lab very soon.
