    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???

    The IOS you are trying to load required 96 Megs of memory. you have only got
    64.
