RSP4 and partitioning flash and slot0/1

I have a 7507 with an RSP4 installed. The device currently has 8MB system flash, 16MB flash slot0, and 16MB flash slot1.

Is is possible to combine some or all of this flash into one partition. I want to install an Enterprise IOS version.

As always, thanks for the help.

Re: RSP4 and partitioning flash and slot0/1

Unfortunately, combining flash cards are not supported.

Here's a snapshot from CCO followed by the link where more info is available.

From CCO:

Unlike Flash memory modules installed directly on the mainboard of the router, multiple PCMCIA Flash devices do not coalesce into one contiguous block of memory. It is therefore important to note that when loading large files into PCMCIA Flash, such files cannot span across more than one device.
