    No bare with you...hehe

    How is life teaching Cisco? That would be lots of fun 4 me.

    I had some really bad Cisco instructors at my CCNA academy 7 years ago which made me
    decide to take matters into my own hands...
    Its hard to get qualified instructors to teach Cisco because it actually take work to be good at.
    You sound like you know your stuff so I'm happy 4 u and your students!


    Good luck

    Wow 1.2 was really starting to make me question rather or not this would be worth writing lol..

    Any who, you can not find any complete detailed analysis of the Cisco IOS bootstrap online at
    all (or so I've tried to google) so I guess I'm happy to say that this is the first complete bootstrap
    explanation avaliable

    It may not be perfect, but I gave it the swish and flick of my harry potter magical wand...

    So you will explain the output of basic IOS commands in other words?

    Thanks for pointing that out. Its been updated. I told ya their would be mistakes here and there.

    I was up most of the night and was pretty tired when i wrote the last parts of 1.2.

    If any one else notices any thing feel free to point it out. I'm about to start on 1.3 in a few hours

    Sorry guys, I've been quite busy here lately and have not had time to finish my work here.
    I will start writing 1.4 As soon as I get some spare time. In the mean time feel free to post
    any ideals, comments or suggestions you feel I should add to this guide.

    As we see we are on a Cisco 2620 Series router with a MPC860 Processor.
    We have 61440K Memory avaliable, 4096k Used.
    The numbers indicate how much is available for code space (61440K) and I/O mem (4096K) aka packet buffers

    Nice work BTW.

    Thanks for pointing that out, thats what i had in mind when i wrote it but apparently i didnt make
    it simple enough for people to understand. I will change that. Thanks

    One of my bigger goals is to remove the old IOS Versions and Feature Set Information Thread
    and combine it into this one, so that much of the information can be found in the same spot.
    So therefore 1.5 will be a continuation of 1.4; covering the same content as the old thread but
    it will be updated. So I still have quite a bit of work to do to this thread

    The IOS Versions and Feature Set Information Thread can be found here for the time being;

    I think that thread is more "techtip" (and a good FAQ link in the Lab section) and this thread is more "Chapter 1 of your ICND book"

    I appreciate all the comments. Yeah, this has turned out to be quite a writing experince for me.
    Since I'm only 22 and in pursuit of my CCIE and I feel good knowing that what I write here
    will help many new comers to the Cisco world.

    Everything I'm writing here has come stirctly from memory. I have not even picked up a book
    So therefore it might be some mistakes here and there and maybe some of it is not as clear
    as I intended for it to be, but as I said I'm open to suggestions and comments.

    As of right now I'm working on 1.4 & 1.5 and I hope to have it on here before the day is over.

    Well I posted 1.4 yesterday so feel free to look. Hopefully I will be able to post 1.5 which will
    be a VERY long one. Also i have a RTF format of this guide if any one wants it. Thats how I've
    been writing it at first, then pasting it on here. So if any one wants the nice lookin RTF version
    of this guide feel free to message me. Enjoy

    Hi Matt,

    I dunno if it would be possible but could you make a .pdf out of it? There is a free open source pdf creator here:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

    That is if you dont have access to adobe writer. It would be fantastico if you could but if you are busy I understand and ill just grab an rtf from you

    A PDF of each version would be very appealing!

    Cheers and great work.

    Btw matt i think tera term pro 313 is a respectable freeware terminal emulation/telnet client. I understand the reasoning of sticking with hyperterminal for the guide but I think mentioning free alternatives is good practice.

    Cheers,
