Cisco TAC *KICKS ASS*.  I just called them up, even though I didnt
have a support contract.  Talked to someone in Sydney, Australia to
open the case, and 10 minutes later, a guy calls me back with the
override password for this switch.  I'm upgrading the firmware now.

Once again, there's a reason Cisco *owns* the router market. 8-)
