    I could enable/disable ports.....
    set port enable/set port disable

    how to make this permanent(the enable and disable of ports)?

    Success in enabling and disabling ports led me to believe that the
    catalyst 5000 is working fine...it has two power supplies, only one
    has been plugged in...

    Your in boot mode, means you have no valid software image. Can't do anything
    until you get that fixed!

    "faulty" probably means that the supervisor failed one its boot up
    diagnostic tests. It looks to me that the system has booted and the "boot>"
    prompt is probably just the default. This switch is 10 to 15 years old so
    you can probably get a replacement supervisor on ebay for pretty cheap.
    What are you using this thing for? Hopefully you didn't buy this for Cisco
    experience because this thing isn't anything like an IOS based switch.

    Just by way of some explanation.

    Many of the high end routers and switches had a three stage
    boot process.

    1. rommon
    2. IOS boot image
    3. IOS main image

    I know that your 5000 is CAT-OS, I was at one
    time familiar with them, but it looks like you have done
    stages 1, and 2 but have got stuck at stage 3.

    I forget the commands now for CAT-OS but you should
    do something like "show boot" and "show flash" and post
    the results.

    sh boot
    sh bootflash
    sh slot0
    sh flash slot0
    sh slot1
    sh flash slot1

    I forget now.

    sh ver
    sh diag
    sh hard

    would be good too.

    I'll try to answer both posts.

    I got the switch to do port enable/disable, and to learn "cisco
    stuff". I gather that ios is not supported on this switch. I was not
    able to download the s/w because I do not have a service
    contract......yes, I want to learn cisco stuff, IOS et al....
    If the supervisor module failed, then, how come I am able to do port
    disable/enable? maybe it has, partially failed.

    I guess I need a more recent cisco switch, my budget is very very
    meagre...

    I doubt I'll be able to get the s/w to put on a replacement supervisor
    module, even if I get a replacement supervisor module.

    This switch may be too old to learn anything useful on it. You can
    learn CatOS, but CatOS skills are rapidly becoming very stale.
    Likewise, even if you had a service contract on it (again, too old to
    even get a new one), you are only going to be able to get images for
    like the last release produced 6-7 years back.

    >If the supervisor module failed, then, how come I am able to do port
    >disable/enable? maybe it has, partially failed.


    If you are in boot mode instead of full CatOS mode, you can do very
    basic management of the switch. The boot image is just the basics used
    to upgrade the sup to a newer rev of code. It doesn't have all the
    features included in it.

    >I guess I need a more recent cisco switch, my budget is very very
    >meagre...


    eBay has a WS-C2950-24 for $65.
    There's one starting at $10 with a bid on it.

    This is going to be a pretty current switch, running IOS that will
    let you get plenty of skills on. I guess I'd prefer to spend $50-$65
    for this rev rather than the previous HW rev of a WS-C2924XL which
    is again getting pretty long in the tooth, and isn't that much cheaper
    over all.

    If you are going for Cisco certification, you will have to have a
    layer-3 switch to study. I suppose after the first step, I'd get a
    WS-C3550-SMI for basic Layer3 switching. These are going $150-$200
    on eBay.

    Again, fairly currently, very much like the current shipping hardware,
    very small differences. These two would get you current skills if you
    learn on them.

    >I doubt I'll be able to get the s/w to put on a replacement supervisor

    But a replacement may come with the software on it instead of what you
    have now.. I'd go for one of the smaller non-modular switches though.
    I wouldn't go for an older chassis switch unless you knew exactly what
    you were getting into.

    Which router do you recommend?

    If you are looking to do certification, I'd recommend getting one real
    router, and the rest virtualize with dynamips/GNS3. I would recomend
    splurging on the router, and get a current one, an 1841, since you
    would be virtualizing the rest.

    There are some 1841 on eBay now for $550.

    This gets you two FastEthernet interfaces, two HWIC slots, ability
    to have a lot of cheap RAM and Flash in it. It has decent enough
    throughput through it (unlike a 2600). Can take the newest cards,
    as well as use some of the older cheap cards too (even if it might not
    be listed as supported... :) Has hardware VPN crypto acceleration, and
    can run the latest code revs, which have dropped out now on all the
    pre-ISR routers.

    I think spending the money on the 1841 is better than spending less on
    something like the 2611XM (at $145-$240) that has a whole lot less
    throughput (single digit Mbps), and runs only old code.

    If you wanted to do a serial link between two, you could pick up
    another of the cheaper ones (ie. 2610 or 2610XM) for the physical
    link at the remote end, they are pretty dirt cheap all around.

    So, having one decent one as your main learning platform, you can get
    away with less for others you may get, or virtualize them all after
    the one. Having one in hand is very useful to get a feel of it, doing
    things like password recovery on, etc. That dynamips doesn't do.

    The prices for all that has been menioned...namely; WS-C2950-24, WS-
    C3550-SMI, 1841; are, at this time, out of my budget.....

    The information you provided, is, to me, not, unimportant.

    What is your budget? With careful shopping on eBay you could get a 3662
    for < $100 (including US shipping). It will run the newest IOS you can
    get without going over the "bump" to an x8xx (12.4(15)T), it has two fast
    Ethernet ports, and it supports a wide range of NM modules including all
    the old, cheap ones. It is a bit big and heavy...

    craigslist.com seemed to have some deals. On, Craigslist, bargaining
    may not be impossible.

    I typically search the computer section with the keyword "cisco"

    For router abd switch, may I get away with just the 3660 and the 3550?

    The switch is no issue, its a superset of the 2950 I mentioned before
    anyway. I just brought it up earlier that it can do Layer3, and that
    is a major push from Cisco for their stuff lately.

    I hadn't seen the 3660's be so cheap before, wouldn't have considered
    them before for the last price I had seen, but thats pretty decent.

    The only drawback to them is that they won't run the absolute latest
    code rev (only the ISRs and up do), and if you are going for a voice
    track, that I'd push for the ISR instead (although the 2810++ then
    with its new style DSP arrangement). But should be totally fine for
    everything else, and even old style VOIP.
