I have a 1002-x in my garage waiting to be staged (powered off at
the moment because it is the loudest piece of 2U equipment I've ever
encountered).  It's IP Base while I wait on the reseller and cisco
to give us the smartnet access we paid for already.

Is verifying if bgp is available in base as simple as typing "router
bgp" and seeing if it complains?

If so, I'll power it up and check.

Oh, also a note to those new to the platform and coming from the
7200 series, you can't just turn the router off.  You have to
reload, watch the console, and power off when you see the
bootloader.  That seems pretty hokey to me.  I suppose your
protection if you don't trust your colo provider is to have multiple
boot devices in the box in case one gets garbled on power loss.
