Is your serial0 interface live? I don't know much about appletalk but is it possible it's being used over the serial connection to the 2501?

I'm sure an expert will follow with better info. One tip I can give you though, is don't ever show anyone your cisco type 7 crypto passwords as they are trivial to decrypt. I already know your passwords.

I'm not sure about the removing appletalk part as I'm not versed heavily in switch configurations.  One thing I *do* know from a security standpoint is that those "password 7" lines are extremely easy to decode.  You should never post those anywhere.  I found something in literally 10 seconds via google that decrypted them.  

I strongly recommend changing your switch passwords.

yes dude, you posted in correct area.

For Cisco IOS devices, if you want to cleanup the config,

#write erase
# reload

after rebooting, you can see that everything is gone.
