Lately I’ve been feeling like my 6500 knowledge is severely lacking. I work with them everyday, but my knowledge of the underlying technology isn’t very deep. I know the basics like most people, which supervisors are better, a general idea of what they’re capable of, etc. But I’m not familiar with the nitty gritty on the sups and line cards. Naturally I decided to learn more. :D

I’m posting this here so I never lose it, and hopefully it will help others. If you guys know of any other decent 6500 links, please post in the comments!
