Catalyst 5000 - Cannot Upgrade CatOS due to config-register setting?

We are trying to upgrade the CatOS versions on our switches to an SSH compatible version. It seems that some time ago, someone locked down the switches in order to prevent changes to the config, by changing the config-register. Also, when I am in the switch, I cannot download any images to the switch (CatOS images), cannot do a show boot, or issue the dir command. This is irregardless of the CatOS version currently on the switches. I also tried to go into ROMMON mode, and am unable to do it either. I have used different hyperterminal clients, and various key sequences to get in, but they don't work. If anyone can provide any type of information, please let me know.

Thanks!

I am sure you can change the boot parameters in enable mode. Are you in enable mode?

No, we have tried to do this from enable mode, but are unable to. I cannot use certain commands such as "show boot" either.
