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

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.
