Cat 6500 booting from bootflash: running Native IOS

I have a couple of questions. I currently have a bunch of 6500's w/Sup1 and sup2's MSFC2's. The devices are set to autoboot. In my config I have the following lines:

boot system flash bootflash:c6sup12-jsv-mz.121-22.E2.bin

boot system flash slot0:c6sup12-jsv-mz.121-22.E2.bin

My questions is, If the switch fails to boot from bootflash: will it then go on and try to boot from slot0:?

What is the best practice for keeping boot system statements in the config?

Should there be a backup statement?

Thanks,

You are correct. It checks the first line and if the image is available, it will boot from there. Otherwise it will move on to next in line. Your config look fine!
