virgin-izing a device

There are two files you need to remove to clean out the configs of a device.  The first is the config file, and the second is the file that records all the vlan info.  

As long as you delete the following, the device will come up empty after reboot.  (Note that you need root on the device to do this.)

delete flash:/config.text
delete flash:/vlan.dat
