2924-XL switch issues

I have just got a 2924-XL switch.  It had 2 IOS files on it, but wouldn't boot from either.  I have tried copying a new IOS image file (c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC13.bin) using xmodem because copy tftp flash would not work.  Each time it says transfer cancelled by remote host.  It appears that there's only around 1.6 Mb of flash available on the switch (can that be right?  The IOS image file that I have is 1.72 Mb.  Does anyone know what image I can put on this switch that will support VLAN's and fit on the switch?
with the HTML dir, the config file, and the var file I only have about 1.25 Mb free...

    If you are trying to load an IOS image on a flash that's almost full just erase one of the IOS's.

    1) Copy old ios images to a tftp
    2) Erase current IOS images on flash
    3) copy over new IOS image on flash

    also, you may need to run the  squeeze utility...  it is equivalent to emptying the trash on windows...
