I have a 3550 and 2 X 2900XL switches with me. I am planning to prepare for the CCNP switching exam and was happy to go on with the switches in my home lab. But lately when configuring STP i realized that many a commands in the syllabus aren't supported in these 2900XL series. Is there any IOS version that would support these commands on 2900XL. The sh version is as given below
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software

Is there any way that i cam upgrade to a better IOS verion that supports STP RSTP (whole set of commands on the CCNP switching exam on these 2900XL switches?
Though foolish will i be able to load these with the 2950 IOS?
