[nsp] RE: Semi Complex configuration (EoMPLS)

As I was researching the MPLS thing and I'm getting confused between MPLS and 
tag-switching, because my 5500 RSM supports MPLS but there are'nt any "mpls" commands,
Just tag-switching commands, while my 7500 router has the mpls commands.
The cisco documentation is'nt very clear on the difference :)
Can anyone explain the difference?

Try EoMPLS. This may provide what you are looking for. Don't know about caveats though....

Is this even possible?

5500----------Router+------10Mb Ether(WAN)-----+Router----------Switch
    trunk Link      |------GRE Tunnel----------|	Trunk Link

Then the Tunnel and Ethernet interfaces on both ends would be bridged. The reason why I want to do this is to tunnel 802.11q or ISL over that 10mb wan ethernet. Because our providor does'nt support vlans over the link.

Is there a better way to do this?
I do have an RSM in the 5500.
