Cisco 3640 - problem loading IOS from tftp?

Hi,

We are having problems with getting a Cisco 3640 to boot an IOS from
tftp. The IOS is too big to copy to flash. I do have one 3640 that
is working fine running this same IOS from tftp and it has the same
amount of physical memory, flash, etc.

I have pasted a copy of the NON-working version, config, and boot-time
error messages below. I have also included at the end of this email
the working version. If anyone could help I would really appreciate
it! I'm having a hard time determining why I'm having issues on one
3640 but not the other???
