That's what I thought too. Since my 2621XMs do it, but I was lazy, and some grabbed 2600-adventerprisek9-mz.123-14.T2.bin off a certain site, and I just can't get it to work with frame-relay on sub interfaces. Is there a walkthrough somewhere to extract the IOS off my physical 2621XMs, since I know they worked when I took my CCNA and CCNP classes at Greenville Tech (I had to provide my own routers and switches, since the college had no devices for us to use).
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
You need to setup a TFTP server on the same network as one of the router's interfaces and then copy the ios image to that server. Solarwinds TFTP server is small, free, and easy to use, but any TFTP server will do: http://www.solarwinds.com/products/free ... erver.aspx
To find the system image file name, you can type dir, sh flash or issue a sh version:

Switch uptime is 1 hour, 27 minutes
System returned to ROM by power-on
System image file is "flash:/c3550-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE6.bin"
Then you type "copy flash: tftp:" at your router's command prompt and a dialogue will start. At the source filename prompt, paste your image name and press enter. Enter the tftp server's ip address at remote host. The destination file will default to the source filename you can enter a different filename if you have a reason to do so.
Switch#copy flash: tftp:
Source filename ? c3550-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE6.bin
Address or name of remote host ? 192.168.1.40
Destination filename [c3550-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE6.bin]?
Press enter and you get a nifty little asterisk progress bar to watch for a few minutes as it streams your image to the TFTP server.
