This emulator seems like a valuable tool but does anyone have any suggestions on getting the IOS's ???

    Get buddy buddy with the network guy at your work/school and ask him for a router IOS image that will work in GNS.

    Your best bet is to search a help-site, like Blindhog.net, for information on properly configuring Dynamips/GSN3 with the required IOS images.

    You are/or will be saddly mistaken. Packet tracer will not do everything the real IOS will do. That is the beauty of GNS3 or real hardware.

    good luck
    I don't claim to be an expert, but I sure would like to become one someday.

    Thanks for all the input from everyone. I do have Packet Tracer 5.0 also. I just don't feel like buying the hardware in these times of my straight outta low cash, especially when this emulator can yield a lab for free with the same results of physical equipment.

    Anyway Thanks again.

    Thanks for sharing the link, i am working on it and got things working. I didnt realise the difference in packet tracer and GNS3, but got it working now so will do all practicals now in different way.
    However i used packet tracer 5 to practice all for CCENT.

    Thanks again.
