I have a cisco 2621 that will now only go to rommon mode.   This is the boot output...

loadprog: bad file magic number:      0x0
open: failed to find and/or load the bootloader: "flash:config"
loadprog: error - on file open
boot: cannot load "c2600-is-mz.122-16a.bin"

The flash looks like...

rommon 1 > dir flash:
         File size           Checksum   File name
      4728 bytes (0x1278)     0xec0f    config (deleted)
      4776 bytes (0x12a8)     0x2142    config

Help!  I think I need to set the config but I'm not sure how to do it in rommon, thanks!
