In this discussion it may be helpful to distinguish differences of version and of feature set. The original post indicated this about the software that they were running:
IOS (tm) C2600 Software (C2600-IPBASE-M), Version 12.3(6e), RELEASE SOFTWARE
This tells us that the version is 12.3(6e) and the feature set is IPBASE. Version 12.3(6e) certainly supports BGP but as Edwin points out the feature set IPBASE does not. So the original poster would need to change the feature set of the software (not necessarily the version) to get support for BGP.
Does anyone out there know of a website that has a list of what features are on each feature set? This has been an anomaly since I have been working on Cisco equipment. I know I can go look up a feature and see what feature set supports it but wouldn't it be nice to know at least what the subsets are.
What I mean is IP base has a set of features IP PLus has a set of features but what is it that IP Plus has that IP base doesn't?
I think you can get what you want by going to CCO, to Technical Support, to Tools and Resources, to Software Advisor, to Compare the Features in Different Software Releases, fill in appropriate router identification, then pick a release and feature sets to compare. This gives a pretty complete listing of features unique to each feature set and a list of features common to both feature sets. It is a pretty nice tool and should provide the information that you are talking about.
