Hi Neil, you should be able to get CATOS image for your CATALYST 5000/5505/5500 SUP II (100BASEFX, MMF ), please go to software advisory link bellow and do a "search by paltform".

You are going to need a Route Switch Module in order to load Cisco IOS on that switch.

I think there is a 5302 RSM

The only card that can use IOS is if you have a RSM (route switch module, layer 3 routing) card which you have not said you have . A straight layer 2 supervisor is catos only and cannot be changed to IOS .

Thanks, The 5500 does come with a RSM. Is their any particular "rev." of RSM which is must be above. It was mentioned before in a previous reply 5302 RSM

If you have access to CCO then get the last created general deployment version for the RSM which is 12.2.46a .
