Have a look at this document, it is for the 6500 but it is relevant to the 3560 -

come back if you have further questions.

Re: configuring rapid spanning tree

Hi Michael,

To enable Rapid STP, all you have to do is use the spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst in global configuration mode.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3560/software/release/12.2_35_se/configuration/guide/swstp.html#wp1156866

Make sure you put this command on all your switches, otherwise the switch without this command will use 802.1D.

HTH,
