Help me recover a password on a 2900 series switch

On the surface this seems like a newbie question, but its really pretty tough. I'm trying to install IOS on a WS-C2908-XL (just IOS 11.x since it doesn't have enough memory for 12.x) but I get a permission denied error on the boot loader screen. I tried the password recovery procedure found here: click me but I don't have config.text in my flash directory so I can't proceed. There's no version of IOS installed in flash either, so even the boot command is worthless.

Does anyone have a suggestion? I've tried everything I can think of icon_sad.gif
