12.4(9)T means you have a router with an etherswitch network module. What kind of NM is it? If you have an NME-16ES or any NME, this is a switch module equivalent to an external 3750 and it has it's own IOS, configuration and NVRAM - it's a switch in a module.
Here are more info on that NME, in case it's what you have:
No NM on this unit. It is a Cisco 1811 with a built in 8 port switch. The IOS is all inclusive. Normally if I were to paste the vlan info I would paste it at the router# prompt. I want to be able to load the vlan infor via a tftp'd file. Any one else have an idea on how to do this?
Rather than send up a "running-config" or "startup-config" file, have you tried sending up a vlan.dat file?
Grab the one off the router and then have a look at how it's done and see if you can add to it. Although - I've got a funny feeling that might not work.
As another option, I would write a script using perl or expect and have it log into the routers that you need to connect to and run the config file you are after. You could probably do the same with SecureCRT too.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
