I'm currently dealing with two Cisco Catalyst 3500 XL Series. While configuring it using Hyperterminal via console port, I somehow play around with the flash.

The "config.text" get corrupted. It became a "directory" instead !!!!
(I really wonder how a file can became a dir ???)

I tried out some way to restore the original setting. But I am quite new to it and don't really know how to do that !!!

Can any expert pls kindly suggest any way to solve my problem ? 10 Q
(^o_o^)

(keep on looping before cannot load the correct config file) !!!

This link should show you how to work with the files on the flash and replace them if you have to.

I've finally manage to load a new IOS onto the 3500XL using Xmodem.

Anyway, hope to consult you if I encounter any other problems next time.
