I cant see how to select the interface... eg interface ethernet0 or fastethernet 0/1 etc doesnt work.

To manage the switch, use the VLAN 1 interface IP address
 interface vlan 1
  ip address x.x.x.x 255.255.255.x

All ports are in VLAN 1 by default so you can access this IP from almost any switchport

Thanks, but i'm having trouble bringing vlan up...

Switch#show ip interface br
Interface              IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol
Vlan1             YES manual down                  down

Switch(config)#vlan 1
Switch(config-vlan)#no shut
Command is only allowed on VLAN 2..1001.

something has to be plugged into at least one of the switchports. Plug in a laptop, pc, or anything and VLAN1 will come up

I cant plug my laptop in except to 10/100 mgmt as the switch only has gig ports - I guess i'll need to slot in a copper blade before i can configure...?

Yes. How else were you thinking of configuring it by its IP address?

Which sup card do you have?  I beleive you can get copper GBIC's and use in the sup cards gig ports (if it supports the copper GBIC's) and connect  to it at 100 Mbps directly.

Otherwise, to configure it using IP you need to be able to connect to it using IP, which mean you need Ethernet connectivity of some sort.
