AAA on PIX firewall

I want to configure a PIX firewall for local authentication.  This is NOT for VPN clients, only for administrative access.  On a router I would use

aaa new-model
aaa authentication default login local
username administrator password ****

how is the same thing done on the PIX?

Well there is no "default" - you have to specify for each type of access.  Here is an example of how to do it for serial console, ssh, and telnet access:

aaa-server LOCAL protocol local
aaa auth serial console LOCAL
aaa auth telnet console LOCAL
aaa auth ssh console LOCAL
username admin password mikenikes
