Upgrading a 3750 cisco switch stack

I'm reading over this article from Cisco  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5023/products_configuration_example09186a00804799d7.shtml#cfbin1

I'll be doing the manual (.bin) image method. My question is about step 6 with the "reload" command. Won't the reload command just reload the master switch? I have 4 switches in the stack. Should I reload the other 3 switches first, then reload the master?

I still want to do the manual method instead of the automatic .tar method... call me old fashion.

Thanks!

reload will reload the whole stack.

to reload a specific switch use reload slot stack-member-number

also remember that the tar file gives you the GUI, the bin file just the IOS

Thanks. So just the normal "reload" command will reload all the switches at once?
