Migration from ATM to GE using Cat 5000 series

I have existing Catalyst 5000 for my core and catalyst 5500 as my distribution. Currently the network is running on ATM. I would like to suggest to my company to upgrade to GE, whereby it is more easy to manage. My question is:

1.What are the things that I need to consider?

2.Can the Cat 5000 series runs GE network?

3.What IOS version to be upload to the box to run GE?

4.Will it be more practical to change the entire chassis and/or the module?

Yes. The Cat5000 does support Gigabit etherner and we have a range of GE modules

For software requirements, the release notes is the best place
