"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

for some reason I had to rename this file c3550-i5q3l2-mz.121-11.EA1.bin to switch.bin and tell xmodem to copy.  copy xmodem:flash:switch . all is well now.
