Hmm...broken counters.  That never happens with IOS :)

Upgrade to a recent enough bootflash, and you can save alot of money on 
flash by using compact flash cards (128mb ones are cheap) and a $5 
CF/PCMCIA adaptor instead of the pricier/smaller Cisco flash cards.

My current plan is to start deploying these in 7200's and 7500's such that 
there's one flash card and one CF.  The flash card is for a "backup" IOS 
image just in case something happens to the bootflash since ROM IOS won't 
boot from "disk" devices.
