Stuck in a Start-Up Loop - SegV Exception

I've got a 2600 running IOS v. 12.0(3). Friday afternoon it failed on me. When I connect via hyperterminal, the IOS is stuck in a startup loop. It begins the startup and gets into "Decompressing Image" and then starts over: (See Below)

Re: Stuck in a Start-Up Loop - SegV Exception

If it is a software error that is causing it to look, you can download the latest maintenance version of IOS from ROMMON.

See the following URL for how to do this -
