In short you should do the first config via the serial port and assign the IP address to the management port.
FastIron(config-if-mgmt)#ip addr 10.44.9.64/24

Does this really only set the address of the management line or of the whole switch? i.e. If I do a ip address does that allow telnet'ing to the switch from a machine off one of the data ports?
