Help understanding the IOS file names

I am looking for some guidance in understanding what the IOS and CATOS file names mean. Here is an example...

cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA6.bin

Can someone explain this in sections...

cat4000.....

i9s.........

mz..........

122-25......

EWA6........

Also is there any good papers on this subject? Also any good papers on choosing the right CATOS and IOS.

Thanks,

Mike

i9s.........Feature set and capabilities

mz..........I knew this means where the file runs and if it is compressed....correct?

122-25......The version number

EWA6........and this would mean...E for Enterprise Feature set....So W differentiates the release...correct...then what does the A & 6 mean?

Thanks,
