supervisor cat os upgrade on 6500

I have a 6509 with redudant supervisor engines and msfc's and i am going to upgrade the software on them.

The question is how do i upgrade the catos on the standby engine as it seems i cannot get into it (session 2 does not work), only the active one, unlike the msfc's which i can access either one. My intention is to upgrade the active supervisor engine and then pull the card and when the standby becomes active upgrade that, or is there a better way.

regards

Just TFTP the file into the active Sup and the standby will sync up the image(will take 5-10 mins), change the bootvariables to point to the new image and issue a "reset system"
