Here is a brief summary of my setup:

(untrusted network) - 10.15.0.0/24
           |
           |
           e1  
      [router]
           e0    10.5.5.2/24
           |
         (o)   outside interface - 10.5.5.1/24
        [PIX]
         (in) inside interface - 10.20.20.109/23
          |
  (trusted network)

The PIX is in under my control the router is managed by the vendor. I want to make sure that traffic from my netowork 10.20.0.0/16 can pass to the vendor's network, and that the PIX knows where to send their traffic bound for my network. I currently have 2 routes on my PIX:

inside 10.15.0.0  255.255.255.0  GW 10.5.5.2  Metric 1
inside 10.20.0.0  255.255.0.0     GW 10.20.20.1 Metric 1

*10.20.20.1 is the internal router

I guess my confusion deals with the "inside" before the route. Does this mean that this route only applies to traffic hitting the inside interface? Will traffic arriving at the outside interface know where to go?

You will need to add a route

route outside 10.15.0.0 255.255.255.0 10.5.5.2

You will also need to delete the inside route to 10.15.0.0
The inside is just the interface name from where the traffic will be forwarded(outgoing).

The route provided above would forward all traffic destined to 10.15.0.0 to 10.5.5.2 through outside interface.
