I am not sure which software downloads to get to properly upgrade my Cisco 4507R core switch.  Cisco lists many and I am uncertain what is necessary vs. nice to have.  I am guessing all I need to do is upgrade the Supervisor II+ with the latest, but even that has 8 choices for me to choose from.   Below is a 'show mod'.  If you could direct me to the correct file name it would be appreciated.  

Also, this core has redundant sups.  Each time I do a write erase or clear startup-config and erase cat4000_flash: all the stuff comes back!  From what I have read the deleted sup should sync with the standby sup and I should have these problems.  Again, you assistance is appreciated.

No that isn't really what I needed.  My problem turned out to be that instead of write erase and reload I needed write erase and "redundancy reload shelf".  that allowed me to flatten it and return to factory.  then i had to manually run the "squeeze" command which I hadn't done before.  then i was confused by which of the 10 differrent software upgrades to apply.  I got it worked out.  thanks.
