2950 IOS SWITCH ISSUE

I have another Cisco 2950 24 Layer 2 switch, even though it must have some funtionality to allow 'ip addresses' on each interface!!

the tftp server located on the pc can ping the switch and vice versa.


After doing a 'sh flash' it confirmed that the new ios of 3mb that needed to be copied to the switch, meant that I had to 'delete' the current ios.  Ive also rebooted the switch and it is the prompt: (I know I shouldn't have)

switch:

I have nothing on the switch I want to keep!!!!!!!!!
how can i install a fresh ios as not sure how to get out of prompt 'switch'?

After doing a 'sh flash' the ios is now not in the list, but on trying to do:

copy tftp flash
ip address of the  tftp: x.x.x.x etc etc, it keeps saying error!!

does anyone know why?

Before rebooting I was able to ping.
Although I know I shouldn't have rebooted, but because the switch was not allowing me to:
'copy tftp flash' - even though everything was pingable im not sure why.  As i 'cut and paste' the ios and typed manually the 'tftp ip address', but it kept showing error, hence reboot!!!:((

so now stuck at:

switch:
ive also done a 'reset' and nothing more!!!
What does the switch show when you type ? (question mark)?
it shows a list of commands like:

flash_init
load_helper
copy
reset
unrest
version
etc etc
it shows a list of commands like:

switch:?
