I'm planning to install a redundant switch configuration using a 6506 and VSS.  My question is, if both chassis are not populated with the same hardware ... Example, Switch 1 has (3) 48 port blades and Switch 2 has (2) 48 port blades, what will happen?

You'll basically have one switch with (5) 48 port line cards.
