VLAN setup (need help, almost done)

Ok, I have a 2924 switch and a 2612 router. Trying to implement a VLAN here.

So far I've:
Made port 0/4 on the switch part of  VLAN2.
Made port 24 on the switch the trunk link

I went to the 2600 router and did a

c2600(config)#int e0/0.1
c2600(config-subif)#encapsulation dot1q
Invalid Input detected  ^

It seems the encapsulation command is not working.  I am running 12.3(9) IOS on the 2612 router.   I know that this router supports 802.1q encapsulation as stated here by Cisco http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps259/prod_bulletin09186a00800921e4.html
Help! I even downgrade my IOS to c2600-io3-mz.122-23  and still nothing?

methinks you'll need to have at least the ip plus feature set in order to get vlan support.

the 'downgrade' image you've got is  IP/FW/IDS which might not include the 'plus' features.

The  'plus' features are included in images with an 's' in them, such as:

 c2600-is-mz ( IP PLUS)

 c2600-ik9s-mz ( IP PLUS IPSEC 3DES)

WOW, nevermind. I just found out I have to buy it and it costs 3 times the price of the router! lol.
Oh well :-(
