Procurve networking management

We have three procurves. (2)5406zl and a 2606 24 port 100 mbit POE.

Currently we have a 4-port trunk between the two 5406 chassis and a 2 port trunk to the 2606

My problem is that I haven't figured out a way to access the other switch management interfaces without plugging into the default_vlan (one port) on both the non-root switches.  So I can access the root switch by using the default gateway IP of :10.0.3.254, butt he other 2 switches I have  to physically plug into with my laptop to access.  This might seem good for security, but, not so good for administration.  Here's a simple ascii diagram:

            5406zl(b)
                || ||
__core between flores____
                || ||
            5406zl(a)  == 2606

switch a is the only switch I can administer over the network, the other two have to be plugged into.  Here are the two 5406zl config files

You run the a-sw as a routing sw. (layer3-sw) , meaning all vlans with an IP on this switch will participate in routing BETWEEN the vlan's. Fine.

L2 sw.'s:
The b-Sw only has (and prob. only should have) an IP in vlan 1.
On b-sw. change
from  'IP Routing'   to:
IP Default-gateway 10.0.1.199

To communicate WITHIN vlan 1 all sw.'s should have IP's in same network,
10.0.1.0 255.255.255.0:
such as
ip address 10.0.1.252   255.255.255.0
(not 10.0.3.252   255.255.255.0)

All I had to do was add a static management ip to the b switch for vlans 2 and 3.
