reset Cisco ME3400 to factory defaults

I need to reset a Cisco ME 3400 switch back to factory defualts.  The old admin left no notes!  I can break before the flash loads and get to the switch: prompt, but I don't know where to go from there.

Thanks!
Don

At the switch: prompt, type
flash_init
dir flash:

you'll see the config file. Type
delete flash:[config file name]

type
boot
and it should come up clean.

 Connect to the switch console port

Power off the switch, and reconnect the power cord to the switch

when you see this message
 ***** The system will autoboot in 5 seconds *****
    Send a break key to prevent autobooting.
 
enter the break key on the console terminal
the switch will boot ,, after that enter the following

switch: flash_init
  switch: load_helper
 
 
switch: rename flash:config.text flash:config.text.old
switch: boot

then

You are prompted to start the setup program. Enter N at the prompt:   Continue with the configuration dialog? [yes/no]: N

go the enable mode

Switch> enable

and enjoy change upon your need

if you need to go back the x-configuration

Switch# rename flash:config.text.old flash:config.text

Switch# copy flash:config.text system:running-config
Source filename [config.text]?
Destination filename [running-config]?
 
Switch (config)# enable secret password

Switch#wr
