Do you have a beta firmware? The publically available software can only 
be an IPv6 host so far (for management, just like e.g. the Cisco 2960 
L2-Switches) and possibly to MLD snooping, but cannot route it.

Mike, have a look at Cisco 3560G/3750G (ME6500 for more features, but 
that only has 24 copper + 8 SFP and is more expensive) or Foundry FESX(E).
